Eat your (micro) greens

Where can you buy and enjoy local microgreens?

Biltmore eateries and other local restaurants

Eli Herman doesn’t market his microgreens off the estate, but you can find them on dishes in all of Biltmore’s restaurants.

Wesley Sleight currently sells his microgreens directly to Chestnut, Elements, Bone & Broth, Root Down food truck and Farm to Fender food truck, as well as to other eateries through the local food distributor New Appalachia. Of course, other Appalachian Grown restaurants source local microgreens; for a complete list, search “restaurants and bakeries” by product in ASAP’s online Local Food Guide, at
