Located in the former location of Which Wich?, Market Table is a welcome addition to the Homewood Restaurant scene. Part market, part café, part bar – something for everyone! Many of the ingredients for their café are available in the market so you can create the meals at home. For breakfast, enjoy croissants breakfast bowls, or a la carte eggs, bacon, grits, fruit, or veggies. I’ll be back for a prosciutto croissant with goat cheese and arugula with a side berry parfait. Lunch offerings include soup, salad, and sandwiches. I ordered the Smoky Pimento Cheese sandwich with a side salad, which was delicious and a perfect lunch-sized portion. Next time, I want to try the Witt Farm Strawberry salad with arugula, feta, and mint. If you need a little meat midday, try the Southeastern Family Farms Ham sandwich served with brie, arugula, and peach chutney aioli (I’m a sucker for anything with aioli…). You can also add bacon, chicken, shrimp, or salmon to any sandwich.
They have a Kids’ Menu with options like grilled cheese or nuggets but I’d recommend you get your Littles to try the green eggs and ham.
You can view wine selections on Market Table’s website – they are numerous. If you can’t make it for breakfast or lunch, stop by after work to pick up something from the market. Offerings include meat, wine, beer, and flowers so you can create a perfect dinner for family and friends (or treat yourself!) The meats sold at the butcher shop come from local farms and the produce is from local vendors. Enjoy a glass of wine and watch the world (or at least Homewood) go by from the outside patio while you wait for your butcher shop order. If you’re in a hurry, you can swing by for a meal kit to take home and assemble in under 30 minutes.
