Buncombe County Farmers Markets

While I was at the Community Fair at Enka Middle School, last week, I picked up an Asap Local Food Guide from a booth set up by the Appalachian State Collage. In the pamphlet, is a list of over 800 local listings of family farms and local food business!! I would like to share some of those listings with you. Buying food locally is wonderful! Not only are your helping yourself and family by buying fresh grown/bred food but your also helping out local families make a living. Selling you their good is what pays their bills! Everyone needs to pay bills and eat, don't we?

I love going to WNC Farmers Market! That's the only one on the list that I have visited personally and the people are wonderful. You can find some very nice people at Farmers Markets that you wouldn't necessarily meet or talk to in any other setting.

I will be posting more listing for Buncombe County soon. The listings will include Roadside stands, Family Farms and more. Keep an eye out!

All listings above are from the 2013 Asap Local Food Guide. If anything is out of date, let me know and I will update it asap. I haven't had the chance to look up every listing since there are alot of them available.
