What You'll Get
Welcome to Groupon, Asheville! For our inaugural deal, $12 gets you $25 worth of food and drinks at The Market Place, located at 20 Wall St. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Asheville: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power." If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (5 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons or redeem them with our mobile app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires–today's expires in six months. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
Locally sourced cheese is always preferable to moon cheese, which was found to have dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's brain waves. Enjoy a fresh, earthbound meal with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of farm-to-table comfort cuisine at The Market Place, located on Wall Street. A downtown Asheville mainstay since 1979, The Market Place preserves its sprightly spirit with a succulent menu of eats featuring ingredients from within a 100-mile radius, summoned with a bewitching flugelhorn melody. Immerse incisors in the wood-grilled brasstown beef short ribs, served in a red wine reduction over a potato and parsnip purée ($24), or whisk whiskers against the elbow macaroni and cheddar mornay, a gourmet version of mac ‘n’ cheese sidekicked with Benton's prosciutto and green beans under an herb crust ($8).
Frommer’s and Asheville Foodie featured The Market Place. Yelpers give the restaurant an average of four stars, 76% of Urbanspooners recommend it, and four Insider Pagers give it a three-star average.
- An upscale casual restaurant with candlelit tables, this establishment has impeccable service. The chef uses extra-fresh ingredients, and all herbs and vegetables are grown locally. – Frommer’s
- We found the staff very warm and professional. We also thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful menu. The menu is continually evolving according to what comes in fresh off the farm so there is always something new for you to try. – Asheville Foodie
