ASAP’s annual Local Food Guide is the definitive resource for local food in the Southern Appalachians. Like so much else, it looks a little different this year. Rather than printing information submitted before the pandemic, we are offering an abridged edition. The 2020 guide features stories from the region’s farms and how they have responded to COVID-19. There are updated listings for farmers tailgate markets and on-farm activities still open this season.
Use the Online Guide
The online Local Food Guide at appalachiangrown.org is updated throughout the year. It includes detailed information for all Appalachian Grown farms and markets as well as partner restaurants, groceries, artisan producers, wholesalers, lodging, and travel destinations. Use it to search for specific products, locations, CSAs, farms to visit, and more. New search functions let you look for online ordering, delivery, and pickup options. Remember that information may still be in flux. Always contact farms and businesses before visiting to confirm hours, offerings, or precautions in place.

The Local Food Guide will be available at many farmers markets and farm stands throughout the region, as well as select grocery stores, restaurants, and travel destinations.
