Stock + Grain Assembly

High Point

The 12,000 square-foot food hall will celebrate its grand opening this September at 275 North Elm Street, near the centerfield entrance to Truist Point Stadium. The food hall will also include two bars, one focusing on craft cocktails and draft beer, and a patio bar featuring seasonal drinks. We’re excited for this opportunity to highlight High Point’s unique culture and history. The name Stock + Grain Assembly was inspired by the history of the furniture industry in High Point and take a cue from the craftsman heritage of the neighborhood, with a subtle nod to food. The logo found inspiration in industrial artifacts – upholstery labels, manufacturing company logos, furniture makers’ marks – and even features a dovetail joining “Stock” and “Grain.”
