In great company in Culinary Local's Top 100 Atlanta Chefs, Owner of Pine Street Market, Rusty Bowers, stands out as a butcher and food crafter among creative and talented chefs.
"Rusty Bowers owns and operates a whole animal butchery shop located in the Avondale area of Atlanta. It started about 10 years ago as a whole sale butchery shop with just Rusty, but it now includes a retail store, online store and classes, with five full-time butchers and a retail and delivery staff. He grew up cooking in Jacksonville, Florida, before moving all over the country and the world, along the way picking up different butchering techniques and a love of community raised meat. Rusty is also the co-host and co-creator of Smoke and Glory, a Chef Thunder Dome style tournament in the area."
