Local Farmer's and Tailgate Markets


It may be fairly clear as to how buying local foods benefits the farmer, however with the higher price tag sometime it is more difficult to discern the true benefit of buying locally.

  • Less pesticide-laden and not genetically engineered to sit on a shelf.
  • Doesn’t travel great distance, therefore doesn’t lose flavor & nutritional value.
  • Small independent farms make less environmental impact.
  • Buying locally stimulates the local Economy.
  • Buying locally helps maintain Asheville’s Heritage of Farming.
  • Consumer can value and understand where their food comes from.
