After shuttering his Lower Greenville eatery Wayward Sons earlier this year, Chef Graham Dodds has managed to stay busy. Now, the chef will join a new farm-adjacent eatery all the way up in Celina.
Dodds is in charge of developing the menu for The Farm Stand Cafe & Market, a restaurant that will open inside Celina’s Light Farms. The menu will serve up fresh ingredients sourced from local farms, and an adjacent market will offer a selection of coffee, cheeses, meats, organic produce, and snacks, also largely sourced from local purveyors.
It’s a good fit for the farm-obsessed chef, who also helped develop the menu for Quincy’s Chicken Shack in Coppell after the closure of Wayward Sons. On the market side, a sourcing manager with experience at Central Market and meal kit delivery service Blue Apron will be in charge of curating the selection of take-home goods.
The Farm Stand is expected to make its debut in Celina in Fall 2017.
