SIMPSONVILLE — The redevelopment of Burdette Central in downtown Simpsonville continues to fill with its newest addition, a farm-to-table restaurant that draws heavily on local produce and livestock.

Farm Fresh Fast is now open with its second location.

The first location opened in 2017 on Church Street in downtown Greenville. The idea was to partner with local farmers and provide predictability that what was produced would be purchased. In his late teens, owner Jonathan Willis struggled with his weight. With a background in biology, Willis embarked on a nutritional program and bodybuilding regimen. The program — which involved healthy fats, low-glycemic carbs and lean proteins — ultimately helped him lose 110 pounds.

The menu features a variety of burgers like the Almost Heaven Burger, wraps like the Crispy Thai Pork Wrap, seasonal stir-fries and Farm Fit Plates.

Shaped plates offer the choice of a protein – in queen or king size – with two sides that are updated daily, such as seasoned green cabbage and sautéed squash.

The Farm Fresh Fast concept also includes a meal prep menu, which can be ordered online at [email protected]

The Burdette Central redevelopment is nearing completion and is anchored by companies like 1885 Taproom and Sidewall Pizza. The Burdette Building dates back to 1899, when it served as a family hardware store, and its redevelopment is part of a larger revitalization of downtown Simpsonville.

Farm Fresh Fast is open 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, Thursday, and Friday; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday; and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for Sunday brunch. The restaurant is closed on Tuesdays.
