Krissy Davis is looking forward to Haymarket by Ashbourne Farms being directly across the street from her restaurant, River Road Barbeque.

“I think it sounds great, it’s nice to have someone new in the neighborhood,” she said.

The general manager is most excited about the traffic it’ll drive to her business, which has been on River Road for a decade.

“I think having additional traffic would be great because the smokers are our biggest marketing source,” Davis said. “When people drive by and they smell that smoke, they turn around and they come right back.”

Based on the rare concept of the 6,000 square foot Haymarket, chief operating officer Rodney Wedge says people won’t just drive by, they’ll stay.

The experience is a hybrid approach to healthy eating with locally sourced meats, baked goods, and fresh produce grown right in the property’s urban garden.
