Meadows and his team are developing Jim Adams Farm & Table, a year-round farmer’s market and cafe that will grow its own produce.

The concept will open in Suite 109 of Bolton Village, a 2,800-square-foot space at 2011 Bolton Road.

“Jim Adams Farm really started as a project to advance urban agriculture in the city and kind of grew from there,” Meadows in a telephone interview Thursday told What Now Atlanta.

The concept gets its name from Meadows’ Late Great Uncle Jim Adams, a farming legend in Greensboro, GA.

The Meadows family’s history in agriculture spans several generations, and has included commercial poultry and Georgia peach orchards.

Meadows and his team will build an urban farm in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Atlanta just south of Turner Field. That farm will supply the produce used year-round at the market and cafe.

“There is a growing market demand for fresh, locally grown produce in the restaurant and retail sectors as Atlantans become increasingly health-conscious and focus more on the farm-to-table concept,” Meadows said in a prepared statement.

“Chefs actively promote their use of locally grown produce, and consumers embrace such options where available. There is an even brighter spotlight on the beneficial impact of fresh produce on nutrition and health.”

The restaurant portion of the concept will serve soups, salads, and sandwiches.

Jim Adams Farm & Table will open late-2017.
