From The Carolina Epicurean: Ingles Dietician, Leah McGrath puts on an event that’s near and dear to her heart and many of our hearts, too. It’s called Taste of Local.
As big supporters of “local”, Ingles Markets make a point of showcasing not only local products but the producers behind them.
Leah organizes Taste of Local events at Ingles Markets throughout the year. I caught up with her at yesterday at the Mills River Ingles Taste of Local. What really impressed me was that there were 18 local producers on hand, offering tastes and information. Many of these folks started their business in their home kitchen or by working with Blue Ridge Food Ventures.
