Clean Eats.

Clean and healthy, that is.

Eating local and organic has become a lot more than “weeds and seeds” munching, that’s for sure. More restaurants are offering options that include Arkansas raised and/or produced products and ingredients that are organic and free of chemicals.

The Station is all over the idea. The grocery store and restaurant at the corner of Markham and Kavanaugh (in the old paint shop) is clean and open, and packed full of edible goodness.  More on the jump.


Breakfast options range from bagels from Morningside Bagels in Maumelle, cheese from Honeysuckle Lane, locally produced eggs and locally grown spring mixes. Sure, you can’t get coffee grown in Arkansas, but the coffee served up here is roasted in Rose Bud at the Rozark Hills Roasterie. 


I went for lunch the other day. The Steuben was tempting (basically a Reuben with roast beef instead of corned beef) but instead I went for the Peanut Butter, Banana, and Honey ($4)-- organic peanut butter, local honey, and banana slices on eight grain bread. It’s supposed to come with apple slices, but maybe I confused folks because I asked for a side of Hummus & Pita ($2.50). The hummus is more on the pasty side, but that made it easier to scoop. The sandwich seemed to have a different depth to it than when I make it at home… I think it might have been the combination of the local, rich dark honey with the eight grain bread. It was snack-tastic. Washed it down with a Blue Sky grapefruit soda -- not locally produced, but made with sugar instead of corn syrup.

At some point I’m going to have to go back and try the Eggless Salad Sandwich ($4.25), just out of curiosity. I’m also interested in the Happy Baby Food ($1.99) -- I’ve never seen anything like that offered on a menu, and having a young one means I’m on the lookout for that sort of thing.

The Station is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. (501) 664-3200 or check out their website.
