Sutton’s four sons originally opened the restaurant as Sutton’s Market in 1992 but it closed earlier this spring. Although it is still the Sutton family, it reopened under the new name and a new manager Al Canagan in the second week of August 2007. Jimmie Sutton still helps out in the kitchen when he is able.
