What’s in Season
Join farmers, chefs, fellow community members, and ASAP in celebrating a featured local food each month!
Goat’s and cow’s milk, washed or bloomy rind, flavored with herbs or cocoa…the region’s cheesemakers prouce it all. In fact, they’ve formed the WNC Cheese Trail, modeled after Vermont’s.
To Get Local:
- Enjoy the month’s featured ingredient at many of the area’s Appalachian Grown restaurants. Participating eateries will use the ingredient to create their own unique dishes that reflect our region’s changing, seasonal harvest.
- Find the featured food at groceries, roadside farm stands, and farmers tailgate markets to create your own unique dishes.
- Share your Get Local story at From Here or via email. And, celebrate at special Get Local event(s): This month, there is no specific Get Local event, but ASAP is hosting two CSA fairs, one in Asheville and one in the High Country. You can sign up to get greens and other local produce, as well as meats, delivered to you throughout the season, and you’ll likely have the chance to purchase greens, too!
