Editor’s note: As a component of The Food Section’s partnership with The Assembly, I assign and edit one story each month about food in North Carolina for the digital magazine’s readers. While some of the features aren’t built to cross state lines, the below story is an important follow-up to this newsletter’s previous coverage of Hamlet, North Carolina. Have a great weekend!
