24TH ANNUAL ASHEVILLE HERB FESTIVAL

April 21st, 2013 by Chris Sparks

Asheville Herb Fest

Asheville Herb Fest

There is no better time in the spring to stay at an Asheville Bed & Breakfast and spend time at some of the outdoor events in Asheville.

One of our favorite events to kick off growing season here in Asheville, NC is the annual Asheville Herb Festival at the WNC Farmers Market. This event is a destination for locals and herb enthusiasts throughout the Southeast. Nearly 60 businesses from WNC will gather for three days to share information and sell a huge array of herbs and herb-related products. An information booth is staffed by local Master Gardeners and vendors often have various areas of specialty knowledge such as medicinal herbs, cooking with herbs and growing from seed. Herb products on hand for purchase will include herbal lotions, soaps, shampoos, medicines, and herb-related crafts, gifts & books. You can buy how-to books on cooking with herbs, herbal healing, and herb gardening, and even take a break to enjoy a fresh-cooked lunch and herbal beverage.

Many of us make this our one stop event for all of our herbs, flowers and heirloom produce plants for our container plantings and gardens. The festival is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday.
