ASHEVILLE LOCAL & SUPPORTIVE
Asheville’s Small Business Supporting Each Other
What up y’all!? I hope you are hanging in there and staying healthy. We are almost half way trough the winter yall, and if you are a business owner this is usually a tough time od the year. This is why today I want to give you a sneak peak of the community that makes Descubre Asheville possible, and how they support each other.
We all know Mamacita’s Taqueria for their award winning burritos, and Taco Temple for awesome tacos, but did you know the chilis used in their salsas and much of their produce is often bought from Vanessa?
Vanessa and her son have a spot at the market, this is great because it supports a lady owned business and the produce comes from local farms in the area.
If you are a local and you like Mexican food you know many of the staff at Mamacita’s are latinos. Some of them have been there since the beginning, that means 15 years y’all, 15 years. Here is John buying pupusas for his staff at Mamacita’s Taqueria from Pupuseria Patty. He enjoys a pupusa while he waits for his order and chats with Patty Saenz, owner of Pupuseria Patty.
Patty Saenz sent me this photo and told me how much she appreciate it John stopping by during one of the slowest days this January.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Chef Santiago Vargas has a passion for sharing the food of his native Peru, and when he is not working on one of his events, he also loves to give back by collaborating with a number of organizations in Asheville.
Welcome Table is one of my favorites because of their involvement with the community.
All right y’all, enjoy the not so bad weather today almost 60❤️❤️❤️❤️ and next week we’ll be in the 50’s, if we are lucky it may be a short winter!
