Grainmaker prides itself on serving local food and partnering with local businesses. From the construction and design of our restaurant to the ceramic bowls we serve our customers, we believe in supporting our community. Big change starts small. Together we are MAKING IT GRAIN!
Here are just a few of our local partnerships:
Our beautiful, hand-crafted ceramic bowls were designed for us by local Ceramics Artist, Tyler Gulden. Tyler uses salt firing and soda firing methods, which produce natural variations in the clay. We love that each and every bowl is unique, just like the customers eating out of them.
Tyler has been a ceramics artist for over 20 years, but this is his first time his work has appeared in a restaurant.
Not all juice is created equal. Beacon Blend is the first juicery in Massachusetts that does not remove the fiber from the juice. Made in small batches, each blend uses the whole plant and is designed to benefit your health. This way your body is receiving maximum nutrition and lower sugar levels. By using the whole food, we don’t discard the pulp and we don't waste food. Our juices, smoothies, and chia waters offer essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins and fiber to benefit a healthy lifestyle. You're welcome, mind-body-soul.

Boston Rescue Mission
On average, restaurants waste 40 percent of their food. That didn't cut it for us. At the end of the day, we deliver whatever remaining food we have to the Boston Rescue Mission, an organization which has been providing food and shelter to those in need since 1899. We are proud to be teaming up with them to help fight hunger in Boston.
