Jim and Mary McDaniels moved their young family to the Northern Neck of Virginia in the fall of 1976. They operated a small store in Irvington for many years before opening McPatty's Restaurant (with Mary's sister Patricia) in Kilmarnock. A few years later, Jim and Mary started The River Cafe which specialized in homemade pasta, steaks, and seafood. In 1994, they opened The River Market and have been a consistent source of gourmet food for many years.
