The Original Grit Girl

Extremely warm welcomes to our newest Thursday, Mid-City Market vendor Grit Girl! In operation since 2000, what started as a small endeavor with friends and neighbors grew into supplying over 185 restaurants nationwide! Owner Brittany Barnes proudly offers grits and other specialty items from stone-ground Mississippi grown corn. She proudly explains nothing ever sits on the shelf, grits are milled to order and preservative-free! Grit Girls not only has grits, polenta, cornmeal, and masa, but also offers a unique take on grits by milling black-eyed peas or popcorn! Swing by, say hi to Grit Girl employee Robert, and give ‘em a try!
