Meet the people changing our local food system and taste the flavors of summer in the mountains, one bite at a time.
Where: Highland Brewing Company Event Center, 12 Old Charlotte Hwy, Asheville, NC 28803.
Details: Eating local is about more than just food. It’s about the relationship with the farmer, the connection to place and heritage, and the sense of community that comes from knowing the story behind your food. It’s about experiencing something fresh, seasonal, and grown here. This summer, ASAP invites you to experience the diverse foods and culinary traditions of the Southern Appalachian mountains at ASAP’s Local Food Experience!
Experience the dynamic connections between farmers, chefs, and artisan food producers by sampling Appalachian Grown foods and meeting the faces of the local food system. Enjoy local bites and plates from Ultimate Ice Cream, Looking Glass Creamery, Sunburst Trout Farms, Waynesville Soda Jerks, Imladris Farm, Green River Picklers, French Broad Chocolates, HomeGrown, and many more. Additionally, we’ll have a silent auction with exclusive local food experiences, and family friendly activities for all ages to enjoy.
