Farmstead Flatbread is the newest entry in the eclectic Sutton's business universe, selling regional craft beers and wood-fired pizza along with locally-produced meats, cheeses and other foodstuffs.
The owners are Jered Holycross and Jane Sutton. Jane is the daughter of the Suttons -- Donna and the late Steve -- who founded a furniture business in the '70s, then branched into a food marketplace and eventually sold off the furniture portion to concentrate on the market and cafe.
Holycross and Sutton are not food business novices. He trained at the Center for Culinary Arts in Cromwell, CT, and she has a degree in hospitality management from Champlain College in Burlington, VT.
Farmstead Flatbread has a full bar offering locally-distilled spirits and a lineup of more than 20 craft beers. It also offers a menu of sandwiches, salads made from locally sourced produce, meats and cheeses, as well as flatbread pizzas and chicken wings made with a proprietary rub created by Jane's brother, Gabe Sutton.
Sutton's Marketplace is located at 1066 Route 9, between Northway exits 19 and 20, Queensbury. Winter Hours: 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
