We are lucky to have a number of amazing farm stewards and CSA farms here in the Greater Asheville area.
This holiday season, farmer's markets allowed us to buy sustainable, useful gifts such as honey, molasses, jams, jellies, pickles, salad dressings, and herb vinegars and oils directly from the person who made them.
My real estate clients enjoyed thesmall tokens of affection we found for them: "non-edible" gifts such as soaps, salves, lotions, pottery, baskets, quilts, pot holders, bee's wax candles, brooms, and more local wood and fiber crafts.
There follows a list of links and connections that may be of interest to you no matter where you live.
