Harvest Moon Grille, the food cart

We have sold our food cart!

It was a fun ride but it’s time for us to focus our attention on other matters.  We’ve handed over the keys and the reins to Minacci’s Gardens who will use the cart for sales on the street, for events and catering.  It will be a nice complement to their vegetable production business.  Check out their website for more info.  For us, it’s time for a new chapter.  We had a blast running the cart and meeting so many fabulous folks while serving phenomenal food.  Thanks to all of you that were part of our storied beginnings as food cart pioneers in Charlotte!  We took our concept of fresh locally-sourced ingredients and creative seasonal menus to the streets in 2009, and into our brick-and-mortar location in Uptown Charlotte a little over a year later.  Now we are working on a new restaurant, Farmer-Baker-Sausage Maker, to be opening in Lincolnton this spring.


About Harvest Moon Grille

the original hmg

We wanted to offer our neighbors another option for food on the go, so we launched our venture, The Harvest Moon Grille.  We served delicious, fresh food all made from scratch with locally-grown ingredients (featuring our pork!).  Now, you can find us and that great food at Harvest Moon Grille at the historic Dunhill hotel in Uptown Charlotte.
