Highlights from Meet Yer Eats 2014

On Labor Day, Market Central hosted its sixth annual Meet Yer Eats Farm Tour, celebrating the work of twelve farms that produce food for the Charlottesville City Market.  Classes, lectures, tours and demonstrations were scheduled to highlight each farm’s unique contribution to our local food system  —  from raising hogs on seventy-five acres of forest land, or using permaculture practices to grow fifty different kinds of vegetables on only five acres, to cheese-makers, who raise and milk their own flock, crafting some of the best cheeses in the region.
