Creation Gardens Planning a Huge New Location

Louisville is a mecca for fine dining, with many restaurant choices offering a spectrum of delights.

Several of these restaurants strive to offer locally grown quality ingredients, and supporting them in that effort has been Creation Gardens, a Louisville business that caters to chefs, food purchasers and restaurants. One goal of Creation Gardens has been to source and provide locally grown food – produce, meat, dairy, cheese and “Kentucky Proud” specialty items, including jams and sauces.

For years, Creation Gardens served customers in a deteriorating warehouse adjacent to an elevated expressway. Company owners couldn’t upgrade at that site, as it was marked for takeover for a new bridge construction project.

However, company officials recently announced that negotiations have produced a settlement, and plans are moving forward to build a new, 27,000 square foot location that would serve both professionals and the retail public.

Among the features announced by the company are a demo kitchen, to allow restaurant owners to promote their offerings, educate customers and do menu research; a library and research area, also for menu planning and research; a conference room available to the public; and meeting space to encourage chefs to exchange ideas about food and the food business.

With the new location Creation Gardens also will add new products, including seafood, wines and breads.

The new location will be built in one of Louisville’s hot renaissance neighborhoods called “NuLu,” which is slowly converting from industrial/warehouse use to an upscale area of restaurants, art galleries, and offices. Creation Gardens plans to “recycle” an industrial site formerly used by a storage tank manufacturer.

The company expects its new location to be open for business by spring 2011.
