Asheville CSA Fair: March 12, New Belgium Brewing Co.
High Country CSA Fair: March 26, Leon Levine Hall of Health Sciences, Beaver College of Health Sciences, Appalachian State University
Joining a CSA gives you a weekly box of fresh, locally grown produce, meats, flowers, or other local products—and provides the farmer with valuable financial support at the start of the season. CSA fairs are an opportunity to talk directly with farmers and find out more about what products they offer, where and when they deliver, and their growing practices—and maybe find a CSA program that is right for you! Both CSA fairs are FREE and open to the public. Find out more!
