The familiar face of Chef Will Hughes has landed at Fairhope’s Windmill Market. Will’s presence on the Eastern Shore started when he opened Will Hughes Catering and Market in Olde Towne Daphne in 2005. Will’s efforts and expertise were acknowledged locally as well as by magazines, in cookbooks and with other industry notables. He enjoyed much success in the eight years that he was opened and sold the business to focus his efforts on teaching others. He accepted a position as a chef/instructor in a culinary program and combined that experience with his existing knowledge to embark on the next phase of his culinary adventures.
For the past four years Chef Will has been working as a private chef and caterer with locals as well as clients in North Carolina, Colorado, the Bahamas and South Florida. Last October Will purchased a food truck and started focusing on the mobile aspect in the Mobile and surrounding area. This past February Will’s Farm Foods truck became the first to operate in Daphne. October marked the arrival of Will Hughes Catering and Market at Windmill Market.
Known for his use of locally sourced ingredients Hughes presents a menu of unique soups, salads, wraps, sandwiches along with a daily special. Also offered are local produce, casseroles, soups, salads and dinners to-go. The food truck presents a completely different menu that changes daily, providing a totally different food experience. Will’s food truck can be available for on site event and in the works are “Food Truck Fridays” at Windmill Market which will host an activity oriented family friendly atmosphere celebrating and centered around Will’s Farm Foods. Look for cooking classes and tastings to be announced. Will Hughes @ Windmill Market is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am until 7pm and lunch is served 11am until 3pm.
