A large scale food event at the newly renovated, 60,000-square-foot Garver Feed Mill brought went swimmingly last Saturday. Sitka Salmon Shares and Underground Food Collective hosted "Garver Gourmet" in the recently renovated former sugar beet mill on Madison's near east side.
Some tenants, like a new location of Ian's Pizza, Calliope Ice Cream and NessAlla Kombucha, were already open and operating. But Saturday night's event brought in many people who hadn't seen the space before.
According to Bryant Moderer at Baum Revision, Surya Cafe (the vegetarian restaurant affiliated with Perennial Yoga) is set to open in late September. So is Richard Wirsta's coffee roaster, Ledger. Ian's Pizza will be open for lunch later this fall, starting with Saturdays and Sundays only.
Other tenants include the photography studio Twig & Olive, a florist called Briar Loft and Kosa Wellness Spa & Retreat. Bachmann Construction worked on the $15.5 million restoration.
