Spring is fast approaching. That means Southern Appalachian farmers will soon begin harvesting asparagus, greens, and spring onions to sell at farmers tailgate markets and to pack directly for their CSA—or Community Supported Agriculture—farm share subscribers. To help those interested in a CSA find the right one for them, ASAP is hosting our Annual CSA Fair as an opportunity to meet farmers face-to-face and learn more about their CSA programs and products. We offer two fairs: one in Asheville featuring farms that offer Asheville and Buncombe County deliveries, and one held in the High Country in Boone, NC. Find out more about the fairs here.
As another way to celebrate the coming growing season, Early Girl Eatery is hosting a local food social and fundraiser to showcase Appalachian Grown certified farms and support ASAP. A Celebration of CSA will take place on March 12 from 6 to 8 pm at Early Girl Eatery immediately after ASAP’s Asheville CSA Fair. First, head to the fair to meet local farmers and browse their CSA options, then walk down the street to Early Girl Eatery and enjoy an array of local food choices featuring ingredients sourced directly from participating farms!
Tickets are only $20 and include food and one beer or glass of wine. Buy tickets here or at Early Girl Eatery today!
