In 2016, farm-to-table means little, if anything. It's become a dubious marketing term for most restaurants that tout it, but one McKinney restaurant takes its sourcing seriously: Patina Green Home and Market. Chef Robert Lyford's kitchen is a revolving door of local farmers whose product dictates much of Patina Green's menu. A farmer pops by with 40 pounds of summer tomatoes? Lyford will whip up something with 'em on the fly. Lyford also teaches summer cooking and pickling classes using local produce and is a frequent fixture at McKinney's farmers market. Hand-crafted, minimally produced items in Patina Green's market are meticulously sourced from Texas producers like Windy Meadows Family Farm and Confituras, an Austin jam maker, making this eatery an ideal spot to grab lunch and stock up your pantry.
