Shopping local brings so many positives for yourself and your community. The stores are close to you, the staff forms relationships with you as you shop more frequently, the deals are sometimes better on the merchandise, and the local businesses appreciate the customers.
The S&W Market has revitalized a beautiful historic building in downtown Asheville that plays host to a variety of special – and delicious – local businesses for you to visit. This place is two floors, featuring seven different food and beverage vendors that are all local to Asheville. It’s a great place for a one-stop sampling of some of the best that this mountain town has to offer.
So, let’s start with just the food.
There’s Buxton Chicken Palace – an offshoot of Buxton Hall Barbeque – that puts the famous chicken sandwich squarely at center stage. It’s simply amazing!
Then there’s Bun Intended, featuring award-winning Thai street food cuisine, with innovative flavors and colorful dishes on homemade steamed buns. Organic ingredients plus locally-sourced protein equals pure “yummy.”
Farm Dogs offers a simple twist on a true classic with Hickory Nut Gap 100%-grassfed beef hot dogs. With amazing Blunt Pretzels, seasonal specialties, and the best “fixins” around, this is a dog not to be missed.
Peace Love Tacos brings a variety of tacos and a-la-carte favorites, made with fresh ingredients and responsibly sourced meats and vegetables. Don’t miss out on the nachos, house-made sauces, and Mexican street corn.
