Here in Asheville, “farm-to-table” has become a buzzword that stimulates regional foodies and eager tourists alike. But how do we know when it isn’t “just” a buzzword? Restaurants all over Asheville are using local farmers for fresh, organic vegetables, cheeses, fruits, eggs and various meats.
Local farmers are raising free-range, hormone-free beef, pork chicken and lamb and bringing back heirloom fruits and vegetables. There’s nothing like biting into a tomato bred for flavor instead of one engineered to survive a cross-country trip.
Visit Asheville’s local “Farmers Market” and see for yourself. Buy local and prepare fresh tonight!
