Farmstead Grill Set to Open

A new farm-centric spot is set to kick off in Canton.

Farmstead Grill joins the ever-growing line-up of farm-to-table restaurants (Woodberry KitchenCunningham’s, and Maggie’s Farm) under the guidance of Chef Galen Sampson, formerly of Dogwood Restaurant.

The new spot at The Shops at Canton Crossing, opens its doors on June 16, and will focus on affordable farm fare.

Featured menu items include: Moroccan-spiced lamb with roasted tri-colored carrots and wilted baby dandelion greens, and mustard and lavender honey-roasted chicken with baby haruki turnips and rosemary salt-baked new potatoes. (Sounds fancy, but we’re told the price-point won’t be.)

Lunch offerings include lighter bites such as sandwiches and burgers with creative fresh juices such as carrot-apple-ginger juice.

A companion kiosk, Farmstead Shack, will open later in the summer for carry-out, on-the-go fare such as hot dogs, and breakfast biscuits.

Local farms represented include BaltimOrganicsLiberty Delight Farms, and Autumn Olive Farm.

We’re most excited about the patio seating and ample opportunities for people watching.
