Meet local farmers and learn more about CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs with pickup locations in Asheville and Buncombe County. Joining a CSA gives you a weekly box of fresh, locally grown produce, meats, flowers, or other local products—and provides the farmer with valuable financial support at the start of the season. The Asheville CSA Fair is an opportunity to talk directly with farmers set up at tables (like at a farmers market), and find out more about what products they offer, where and when they deliver, and their growing practices. This is a friendly setting where you can come just to learn more or go ahead and purchase a CSA membership. Groups, such as workplaces, churches, or neighborhood associations, are encouraged to attend, as some participating farms will deliver directly to these locations if there is sufficient demand. Children are welcome and can participate at a kids activity station. The event, presented by ASAP (Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project), is FREE and open to the public.
