In the Southern Appalachians it’s easy to fill your Thanksgiving table with a cornucopia of local food! There are many holiday tailgate markets open this week where you can shop for your feast. Lauren Hoffman, one of ASAP’s communications interns, wants to share some locally-inspired dish ideas that incorporate ingredients from these markets for your holiday menu!
At the French Broad Food Co-op Wednesday Tailgate Market, open Wednesday, November 26, from 2 pm-6 pm, you can purchase Pure Leaf Lard from Beulah Farms to make a delicious pie crust or flaky biscuits. Then stop by Happy Shepherd Farm to buy the Candy Roaster Squash to make sweet and creamy pumpkin pie filling.
There is still time to purchase a local turkey to star in your Thanksgiving feast this year!
