ASAP’s CSA Fair connects farmers and customers!
The CSA Fair is an opportunity to meet area farmers face-to-face and learn about their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs and products. CSA subscribers receive a weekly box of fresh, locally grown produce or meats throughout the growing season.
At ASAP’s annual CSA fair, you can meet with local farmers in a friendly setting and sign up to learn more or bring your checkbook to subscribe right on the spot! Groups from workplaces and religious congregations are encouraged to attend — many of the participating farms will deliver directly to these locations if there is sufficient demand. All participating farms have pickup locations in Buncombe County.
Our next CSA fair will be held in Asheville on March, 2018.
We’ll announce our official date and location this winter, or contact us now for more information. You can also find more local CSA options across Western North Carolina and the Southern Appalachian region in our Local Food Guide. If you are a farm that offers CSA drop-offs in Buncombe County and want to participate in our fair contact Robin at [email protected]
Sponsor the fair and show your support for local food and farms! Contact Scott Bunn at [email protected] for more information on how to sponsor future events.
Are you a business interested in offering CSAs at your workplace? Learn about workplace CSA programs and bring community supported agriculture to your business. Some farms will deliver directly to a business or group that commits to a certain minimum number of shares.
What is CSA or Community Supported Agriculture? CSA is a convenient way to enjoy fresh, locally grown food and connect with the farmers who grow it. Family farms offering traditional CSAs provide the chance to sign up for a growing season and receive a box of produce straight from the farm every week! Most CSAs offer convenient pick-up locations or delivery service.
