Menu planning in the Sundry
Menu planning in earnest

From cheeses to Missouri grown rice and everything in between, including a dog biscuit or two, The Sundry is one of the best places in town to find local edibles. Add some additional staples, and you’ll realize that you might just be able to pick up everything you need for dinner at this recent addition to the Crossroads.

In addition to the vast spread of local goods, The Sundry is doing the right things the right way - solar panels on the rooftop, no garbage service because they recycle, compost, or reuse everything, and an all-electric kitchen where former inmates get a chance to work for a decent wage.

At the risk of sounding like a Billy Mays infomercial, that’s not all! The Sundry prepares their smoked meats in house, bakes most of their breads, rolls, and cookies, and offers up perhaps the best biscuits and gravy in town. Open from 8 to 8 Monday through Friday and 10 to 6 on weekends, the popular lunch spot is easily accessible to those who don’t work downtown.

But, wait. There’s still more! Seriously. Check out one of their classes taught by chef and co-owner Aaron Prater. Prater, who also teaches in the Johnson County Community College culinary arts program, enjoys sharing his craft in classes like “DIY Sausage Fest” where participants make their own sausage, sample traditional recipes featuring sausage, and head home with two pounds of meaty goodness.
