Food For Foodies

With a little over one month to go, it’s time for us to start thinking about where we are going to eat during Market. If you’ve been following us for awhile, you know we like to go off the beaten path, find unique dining experiences, and add a little foodie flair to our Markets.

And April in High Point will be no here goes.

Let us start by saying, we know how crowded Southern Roots in Jamestown gets during Market. Yes, it is our favorite place to go when we are in town, and yes, you can walk in and try to grab a seat at the bar, and yes, you should still try to go there during Market. But be prepared to not get your quiche or seafood gumbo.

Onward we go. If you find yourself in Jamestown wandering the streets after being rejected by Southern Roots, here are some other great spots to enjoy.


The Full Moon Oyster Bar: fresh oysters, a bar bigger than the restaurant, and a favorite among the locals. (And yes, key lime pie counts as a fruit serving, especially when boosted with a cold glass of grape!)


Taste of Troy Grille: authentic Greek & Mediterranean...on the corner where Greensboro, HP, & Jamestown meet.


SidWill’s Cafe: check the hours to make sure they’re open, but this is southern comfort food at it’s finest!


And here are our April Market choices in Asheboro and High Point (lunch and dinner). Get out and’s fun to be a Market Foodie!


Magnolia 23: the menu is on a chalkboard, the fried chicken is exceptional, and there’s a rustic patio...I’m in!


The Table: vegetarian and vegan options in a small batch bakery...yes please!


High Point Lunch:

Parson’s Table: homemade food made by volunteers as a ministry. Only open during Market. So much goodness here—it’s southern “church social” food at its best! Come by and enjoy at The Point on Friday during Steelyard’s Market kickoff.


Blue Zucchini & Company: frankly we are down with any place that lists “Sammiches” and “Ruffage” on their menu!


High Point Dinner:

98 Asian Bistro: we don’t like to repeat choices from previous Markets, but this is still our go-to in town. Awesome Thai!


Magnolia Blue: savory, southern, and a rooftop patio...they take reservations too.   


The Prescott: brand new farm to table so limited exposure so far, but what we’re hearing is quite good!
