Why Timbercreek Market?

Opened in 2015 to sell meat and produce from Timbercreek Farm and other local sources, Timbercreek Market’s food service warrants praise in its own right. Using the market’s products, there are many good parts of their food service, adding up to one great whole. For breakfast, there are fresh biscuit sandwiches; for lunch, sandwiches, salads, soup, and daily specials; and, anytime of day you can enjoy a cheese platter from an award-winning cheese-monger or your chosen steak from the butcher’s case, grilled to order. On top of all of that, Thursday through Saturday evening the market morphs into a full-service sit-down restaurant.

Overseeing it all is former Clifton Inn chef Tucker Yoder, once named one of Charlottesville’s Rising Stars. While the morning and afternoon offerings show the touch of a talented kitchen, it’s at dinner when the acclaimed chef really shines, with creative dishes from local produce that could not be any fresher or more local.
