Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with Southern Farm Network’s Mike Davis to discuss “Today’s Topic.”

The Western NC Farmers Market in Asheville opened in September of 1977, and it continues to serve the needs of farmers, residents and small businesses in the area. A lot of improvements have been made recently to the market to remodel and modernize the space. On Monday, the market received a $1.25 million grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission, which is going to allow for the development of a new concept at the market called CAFÉ. That stands for Center for Agricultural and Food Entrepreneurship.
