"It's all Southern food. Basically,  percent of the ingredients will come from Georgia," Burnett said in a phone conversation with Eater. "Things that we can't get here, we'll have to get from other states — things like salt, stuff like that. But most of the ingredients will be local."
The Georgia Cafe is a member of Georgia Grown and is using it as a resource to reach out to local farmers and source ingredients.
The menu has not yet been finalized, but it will be seasonal and include traditional Southern cuisine like barbecue chicken, cornbread, and macaroni and cheese. The market's lunch spot, Picnic, will merge with The Georgia Cafe, lending its most popular menu items to the new restaurant.
Irwin Street Market is currently is home to Picnic, breakfast restaurant Hilda's, Jake's Ice Cream, hot chocolate stand JD Rothschild & Co., The Delishery Coffees, Teas and Pastries, and The Cooking School at Irwin Street.
