Local Meats, Fresh Seafood and  Neighborly Service - The Chop Shop Butchery #digAVL Video 

A series on how local businesses are adjusting to the COVID-19 crisis

Get your local custom cuts and more now through curb service or delivery with The Chop Shop ButcheryMore than just cuts of meat, they've got custom charcuterie boards hand-packed sausages, incredibly fresh seafood, and house-made specialties. Robert from The Chop Shop gives us an inside look at how they’ve changed things around to satisfy customers with the personal service of a neighborhood meat market.

While we've all had to adjust to the "new normal" (whatever that is), our local business owners and managers each have their own story to tell about how they've been affected and what they are doing during these unprecedented times. Dig Local is proud to partner with our friend, Ann Smith, at Leap Frog Tours to interview some of the awesome folks who make Asheville, Asheville.
Dig this! REIMAGINE 2020 is a collaborative community event that will shine a light on the diverse art community that exists on The Block and provides community resources and family-friendly entertainment both digitally and through small in-person events. This weekend-long event is not a festival. This is a chance to come together (at a social-distance and virtually) to have tough conversations, to grow, to sing and laugh and finish the year strong. 2020 may have been tough, but it’s not over.  Expect digital performances and live performances at YMI and LEAF Global Arts, family-friendly entertainment, and a way to renew your spirits with the exploration of healing arts.
