Locally Grown is GOOD! CSA Farms Where You Live & Here in Asheville , Too

By

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.

Look for  a great link to CSA's across the USA!

Lancaster County PA has a great focus on locally grown foods as well.  My wife is a regular at one of the largest markets, Roots Market in Manheim PA.  They're open every Tuesday.  We have a couple of organizations dedicated to the "buy fresh, buy local" theme.
