April 5 is Opening Day!

It just doesn't feel like spring has sprung until Peachtree Road Farmers Market opens for the season. Good thing that’s happening. This Saturday. So ready your shopping bags, y’all, cause it’s going to be a great year at the Cathedral of St. Philip. The eighth season will welcome a few new faces: Serenbe Farms (certified organic produce), ColdLife Organic Juices (made with locally grown veggies), Earth Biscuit Crackers (hand-cut, flavored crackers), Verdant Kitchen (certified organic ginger and turmeric = ginger snaps, ginger ale, ginger syrup, and ginger bites), and Garnish & Gather (meal kits featuring local ingredients from PRFM farmers).Check out all of our vendors here and come on by to meet them this Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Like father, like son? If we're talking about two of our city's best chef talents...then, yes. Not only is Jeb Aldrich the chef de cuisine at 4th & Swift, he happens to be the son of its executive chef and owner Jay Swift. And though cooking might be in the blood, Jeb's also got some proven sweat in the game (we can't speak to the tears): classically trained at Johnson & Wales, stints at Charleston’s Peninsula Grill and Atlanta’s Rainwater, Canoe, and much-lauded Joël, plus work in Austria and Italy, to be exact. Five years ago he joined his dad at 4th & Swift to create seasonal menus from the highest quality ingredients. Stop by the demo tent this Saturday—it’ll be almost like sitting on 4th & Swift’s new patio, only with a few more friends and farmers around.
