Salisbury Foodie; An Introduction
10 years ago, I was in my mid-20s, newly married, and preparing to welcome my first child into the world. I was just entering the "nesting stage" of my pregnancy and I was determined to find the perfect home for my new bundle of joy. Finally, after countless trips to the bank, months of counting pennies and a little creative problem solving, I landed in the duplex (soon to be single family) home of my pregnant dreams. The home was located smack dab in between some of the most beautiful historical homes I had ever seen, and those older homes that had been abandoned and left to rot over the years. This juxtaposition of the pre and post renovation homes was a contradiction that became apparent in many aspects of Salisbury and now, 10 years later, it has become the thing that makes it so incredibly special.
Like most small towns sprinkled across the Southeast, we have our iconic "Main St," where families and citizens come together to share in food, art, music and merriment. The brick and mortar facade of Salisbury's Main St along with it's historical murals, landmarks and mom and pop shops can make you feel like you've stepped back in time. Another look, and you'll begin to notice the seeds of change that have been planted in Salisbury in recent years. Seeds that are beginning to take root in Salisbury's arts district, in it's local agricultural community, in it's craft breweries and perhaps most notably, in it's wide variety of locally owned eateries.
Here on Salisbury Foodie, I'll be hitting the streets and checking out all of the coolest old, and NEW, hidden secrets in Salisbury and beyond. From historical murals, old fashioned soda shops and community events, to food trucks, craft beers, farm-to-tables cafes and contemporary sculptures, those seeds of change are all around. They need to be nurtured and I am going to help you do just that! Follow along and soon you'll be living like the locals do, and who knows, you might even try something new!
