In the 1950s, Farmers Market Cafe was a place where farmers could sell their produce. In 1960, the Tucker family set up a small counter in two stalls and sold light breakfasts and lunches. These stalls were originally for the farmers to have food while selling. Five years later, the stalls expanded due to increasing demand. A cafeteria opened and included tables and chairs. In 1970, farmers began delivering to businesses, which made Farmers Market Cafe even more popular. The Tucker family sold the restaurant in the 1980s but it’s stood as a local hit ever since.

The A&P Social is the perfect place to relax and savor magnificent Southern cuisine. Before becoming a restaurant, the A&P Social was a neighborhood store. Locals would find quality produce, meats, and baked goods here. The restaurant now pays homage to its roots by serving the same food in a comfortable establishment. Since becoming an eatery, it has updated classics, such as pimento cheese, deviled eggs, fried chicken, and collard greens, all of which come highly recommended.
