The citys cuisine is characterized by a delight in locally raised ingredients. The locavore mentality appears at all levels of Charlottesvilles food industry, including the nationally acknowledged methods of Joel Salatins Polyface Farms, the sourcing of local pork for Chipotles Charlottesville location and the accessibility of regional ingredients everywhere from Whole Foods Market to online favorite Relay Foods. Author and food enthusiast Casey Ireland explores how Charlottesvilles residents have created a food culture that is all their own.
