ASAP hosts its ninth annual Asheville CSA Fair, featuring family farms with vegetable, meat, or flower CSAs with drop-off or pickup locations in Asheville or Buncombe County.
Asheville CSA Fair
March 14, 3-6 pm (Pi Day!)
New Belgium Brewing Company, 21 Craven St., Asheville
Fairgoers can browse different CSA programs and talk directly with farmers about their offerings. Farms will be set up at individual tables like a farmers market and will share information about their CSA programs, including what products they offer, where and when they deliver, and their growing practices. It’s a friendly setting to learn more about your options, or bring your checkbook to subscribe right on the spot! Groups, such as workplaces, churches, or neighborhood associations, are encouraged to attend. Some participating farms will deliver directly to these locations if there is sufficient demand.
This event is FREE and open to the public. A special “Pie Day” popup will feature Sweetheart Bakery. Children are welcome to attend the fair. There will be family-friendly activities.
