Yesterday, I attended the official ribbon cutting for Buie’s Market. City Councilman Jeff MacIntosh and members of the Chamber of Commerce were in attendance.
Perhaps the coolest part was that Mr. Wayne Buie, whom, along with the pharmacy that he owned, the market is named for, was the special guest ribbon cutter for the event. He took time to talk with the attendees, many of which were frequenters of his pharmacy.
Buie’s Market is a quaint little market nestled back in the background of the Buena Vista neighborhood, connected to the same building as Diamondback Grill. It is a specialty market that will feature many local food sources and services. They have produce, most of which is from Whit Acres farm here in Winston-Salem. Camino Bakery is featured in its own section with various styles of bread. Dinners On The Porch has meals-on-the-go ready to be taken home and thrown in the oven. Ice Cream, condiments, spreads, meats, cheeses and much more. They have a coffee bar that also has beer on tap and wine, plus two coolers for packaged beer and wine.
I got to speak with Kristen and Ben Holcomb and Will Doss a good bit yesterday, and I told them that I feel the community needed this and will support it. It’s a beautiful space with a history, which goes over quite well in this town.
Today, they have more grand opening festivities that includes a real, live dairy cow brought in by Homeland Creamery. I recommend that you go and check them out. They are located at 749 N Avalon Road. They are open 7a-9p every day.
