I'm thinking about buying a country place in or near Asheville, NC. Is it a good place to live, for someone who loves to cook?
I'd be spending weeks and months there at a time, throughout all four seasons. I'm most interested in hearing from people with homes or flats there. For example:
Where do you shop for groceries, produce, and specialty ingredients?
What are the farmers markets like?
What are the most pleasant neighbourhoods in which to live?
Are you affected by the growing numbers of tourists?
Is there anything else I should know? Thank you.
