Need recs for Farm to Table Dining in Ashville

There is a list of restaurants referred to as Farm to Table dining in Ashville. They are listed on a are too many to mention here. If someone that knows the area could check these out and let me know which are "chow worthy" I'd appreciate it.

  1. Asheville is an area where a great many restaurants have at least some local sourcing. A quick glance at the list and I can see 20+ which I know have some local sourcing. Others I'm just not familiar with. The amount of local increases in the summer, decreases in the winter.

    It might be easier if you describe what you are looking for,,,There are quite a few great places to eat and a quick look at the boards usually shows the local favs pretty fast.

    1. A quick list if some of my favorites - none of these will be completely "farm to table" but all will have local offerings. I peeked at that list on exploreasheville and would not think of many of them as "specializing" in local ingredients. These I've listed will have more to offer:

      Admiral - dinner

      Tupelo Honey - B, L, D

      Early Girl - B, L, D (although I'd just go for lunch)

      Laughing Seed - Sunday Brunch, L, D (vegetarian - great brunch)

      Table - Sunday Brunch, L, D

      Sunny Point - B, L, D

      Corner Kitchen - B, L, D

      Zambra - D

      And while I have not been, I am curious to check out Marketplace and Posana for dinner.

        Marketplace was excellent, but I understand they either sold or changed chefs? I'm not sure which. Also, we've only been to Posana for brunch/lunch and it was very good. Miss Piggy's list is very good, although I'm not a fan of Early Girl and I really like Corner Kitchen, but not for dinner.

        Corner Kitchen
        3 Boston Way, Asheville, NC 28803

        Posana Cafe
        1 Biltmore Ave, Asheville, NC 28801

          Thanks so much! Very helpful!!If you think of anything else that is "don't miss"caliber, I'd love to hear.

          My husband and I are going on a food walking tour of Ashville as well. That should be fun and interesting.

        2. I also can't give a thumbs up for Early Girl. I would stay away...However, besides EG, the list looks good. I would try out Sunny Point Cafe too, I've never had a bad meal there B, L or D.
