  • Fosters Market in Chapel Hill to become The Root Cellar

    Posted by Greg Cox on August 27, 2014

    Sera Cuni, longtime Foster's Market employee who bought the Chapel Hill location in 2013 with partner Susan White, has taken the next step towards independence.

    They’re officially changing the restaurant’s name to The Root Cellar.

    But chef Cuni is quick to note that the food will retain its, er, roots in the Foster’s tradition of local sourcing and scratch cooking. All the popular specialties that made Foster’s a local institution, from sandwiches and wraps made with house-roasted meats to wood-fired pizzas to house-baked pastries - will continue to be available at The Root Cellar. Same goes for the take-home Family Dinners, holiday meals and gourmet market selection of locally made products.

    Don&#x2019;t know what a pawpaw is? It&#x2019;s the state&#x2019;s largest native fruit. It looks like a green mango, grows in a cluster and tastes like a cross between a banana and a mango.

    More than 1,000 people are expected to attend this year’s N.C. Pawpaw festival in Winston-Salem, where you can tour an orchard, sample foods and buy a tree.
