 NSpotlight: The Sawmill Place Kitchen + Market Brings the Farm to Your Table
Nestled in a charming cabin sive assortment of locally grown produce, It’s also an ideal spot if you’re look- just a mile from the Town Square, “Georgia Grown” products and artis- ing for a unique gift — from handmade The Sawmill Place Kitchen + Market anal goods from Union County and the jewelry and goat’s milk soap to spe- takes farm-to-table and locally-sourced entire tri-state area. With shelves full of cialty coffees, teas, tasty sweets and
to a whole new level! syrups, jams and honey, it’s the perfect delicious mixes!
The restaurant menu is harvest- driven and filled with heirloom recipes from co-owner Amy Kight’s family. “As Amy was growing up, if they didn’t grow it or catch it, they didn’t eat it!” co-owner Shawn Kight explains. “So, we’d rather source five items from 10 local growers instead of making even one call to a food service truck.”
Start with Some Made- from-Scratch Biscuits
Open for breakfast and lunch, you can start your day with a hearty, cooked- to-order meal using seasonal, locally- sourced goods. The farm fresh eggs and applewood smoked bacon are brought in daily, and the tart berries on your buttermilk pancakes probably came from around the corner at Tim Dyer’s Blueberry Patch.
At lunch time (or dinner as we say in the South), the experienced Sawmill staff serves up an authentic meat-and- three using locally sourced meats and fresh veggies harvested on area farms — try the pork chops, meatloaf, slow- cooked roast beef or chicken ’n dump- lings paired with delicious sides like okra & tomatoes, corn on the cob, red skin potatoes, crowder peas and, of course, fried green tomatoes.
Shop the Market
With so many fresh goods grown right here, it only made sense for Shawn and Amy to carry the farm-to-table concept over to a market. Opened in 2017 and located next door to the restaurant, The Sawmill Market offers an exten-
place for any committed “locavore.”
