“Farm Fresh, Locally Sourced.”
In North Carolina’s culinary world, diners and restaurants alike pride themselves on local eating. Somehow, the closer to home the food is grown, the better it tastes. At the Pickle Jar Cafe in Pittsboro, that statement could not be truer. In supporting local farmers and sustainability, their impact in the community runs much deeper than delicious meals.
As their chef, Mario Robledo says, “We strongly believe in supporting our local farmers, shopping small and overall sustainability.”

When it comes to pricing your home, often times, the emotional value sellers place can skew the reality of the actual value. Whether you are shopping for a new home or selling your current home, getting your money’s worth should be of top priority. It may be more important than you think. Regardless of how much you spent on your home or how much money was spent updating it, the property’s current value must reflect what a buyer is willing to pay in today’s market.
