The name “Stock + Grain Assembly” hints at the craftsman heritage of the city, with a subtle nod to food. The logo finds inspiration in industrial artifacts and a dovetail links “Stock” and “Grain.” Stock + Grain Assembly is a 12,000 square foot food hall that is home to nine independently-owned food concepts and two bars. The food hall occupies the first floor of The Outfields’ lead-off building at 275 North Elm. With unparalleled access to foot traffic from Truist Point and Festival Plaza, the modern marketplace is central to the High Point community and an amenity to the revitalized downtown.
In 2016, the City Council of High Point approved a strategic goal to create a downtown catalyst project that would produce jobs, expand dining and shopping choices, add housing, and serve as a centralized gathering space. Today, Elliott Sidewalk Communities champions that vision, which has led to an exciting new downtown High Point.
Since it was marked by a surveyor in 1856 as the “high point” on the tracks of the North Carolina Railroad, High Point has been a place of convergence. Over time, the city brought together materials, craftsmanship, and commercialization to become the residential furniture capital of the world. Twice per year, at the High Point Market, the city hosts an average of 75,000 people from around the globe, generating a statewide economic impact of $5 billion.
