WNC Farmers Market - 570 Brevard Rd, Asheville, NC

$60 per person

This is a cocktail style Flights & Bites event, featuring up to 7 chefs creating 3 small dishes each, as well as up to 7 craft beverage makers, offering an array of delicious drink samples. 

Eating local might be an ethical choice for many of us but for many others, urban and community gardens provide critical accessibility to fresh food – while also building community. These communities are planting not only seeds for produce and fruit but also seeds for self-sufficiency and equal access to fresh, healthy food. The communities and neighborhoods supporting these gardens come together in the name of well-being and food justice for all. Join us for delicious flavors straight from the garden while learning how community members are finding commonalities and purpose in their backyards. 

Speakers: Safi Martin & DeWayne Barton - Peace Gardens & Market; Isa Whitaker - Bountiful Cities; Shaniqua Simuel - Shiloh Community Garden; Clare Hanrahan & Arturo Carrillo - Elder & Sage Community Garden

Featured Chefs/Restaurants: Clarence Robinson - Cooking with Comedy, Tony Franco - Food Experience, Jamie Wade - Sand Hill Kitchen, Eric Morris - Cultura, April Rose - Urban Graze Co., Ashley Garrison - The Hop Ice Cream, Nick Peek - Birchwood Hall
