The Local was started in 2008 to provide a venue to showcase the abundant supply of small farmers, artisan cheesemakers, breweries, distilleries and award-winning vineyards located in Charlottesville and the surrounding area. We are truly blessed to have such a wide variety of agriculture readily accessible and a local population so willing to support the local food movement. Continuing the Local Theme, much of the restaurant’s interior was designed and built by local artisans. 

The Local also offer full catering services for both onsite and off-site events, specializing in weddings, rehearsal dinners, private parties, and corporate events.
