Wild Delicacies Take Center Stage at The Market Place During Asheville Restaurant Week


The Market Place restaurant, a farm-to-table fixture of downtown Asheville since 1979 and widely-acclaimed for its Appalachian cuisine prepared with otherworldly traditions, announced today its menu for Asheville Restaurant Week, running January 16-22, and presented by the Asheville Chamber of Commerce. 


Tuck away any thoughts of going quiet in January. The Market Place’s can’t-miss eatery is showcasing a 3 Course Tasting Menu for $45 per guest. Feast on an array of explosive, fresh winter flavors and year-round bounty from Wood Roasted Beet Salad to Wild Mushroom Tagliatelle and Pan Roasted Sunburst Trout. 


“We’re always excited for Asheville Restaurant Week, because it’s a week for us to see our friends and neighbors from Asheville out on the town, enjoying the best of our mountain city,” said Founder and Executive Chef William Dissen. “As we celebrate 45 years in business, this year is especially meaningful. We’ve been involved in Asheville Restaurant Week since its inception and are excited to share this unique milestone with our guests.”

We are a group of cooks, farmers, waiters, cheese-makers, organizers, ranchers, brewers and dishwashers who share a common philosophy about how we eat and in a larger sense, about life. We believe in the importance of working locally, not just using ingredients from our surrounding area, but also in our contribution to the community. The success of our restaurant has always been closely entwined with the health and progress of our community. For over 40 years we have supported the arts, local-needs and education programs. Our customers have returned over the decades, we hope in part because we have always tried to treat them as family… and friends. Some might say, our food tastes good, perhaps even memorable. Each day, we do our utmost to prepare and present fresh food in a creative manner with a craftsman’s hand. Working in the most sustainable way possible is important. The Market Place has been a fixture in downtown Asheville since 1979. Though its beginnings rose in the streams and mountains of western North Carolina – a place of mountain trout and small farms – it also has a hand and heart inspired by traditions far from our borders. This mélange of local food prepared with other worldly traditions of the table may have helped the Market Place garner national attention but the keen reverence for the heritage and roots of Appalachia has always remained at the center of what we do. We hope you notice.
