We make things fast so you can take your time to savor it all.


Since 1998, we’ve been serving our original, made-from-scratch recipes from our Black Mountain and Asheville kitchens. Our menu offers a blend of our favorites, filled with fresh ingredients, chef-driven flavors, and lots of love. We believe gourmet food should be enjoyed in the comfort of home. That’s why we offer delicious, home-crafted meals that are ready when you are, easy to pick-up and share with family and friends. And we keep it simple. Choose one of our tasty lunch options, grab something ready-to-go from our fridge, or check out our monthly menu to see what’s for dinner tonight.

Formerly known as Red Radish to Go in Black Mountain and Asheville, Little Sprout Carryout is the newest addition to a legacy of our family-owned catering companies.

Marcus Duarte, owner of Little Sprout Carryout and The Red Radish Catering Company, is one of three brothers who have been cooking, feeding, and serving people in the Carolinas and Tennessee for more than 20 years. (If you’re traveling outside the Blue Ridge Mountains, visit the brothers’ Red Radish locations in Charlotte and Kernervsille, North Carolina.)

Whether you are stopping in to our Asheville carryout shop on your lunch hour, or bringing home dinner from our Black Mountain location, our shared purpose is to provide all of our customers with the kind of service we would want you to serve us - friendly, caring, and nourishing.

We make things fast so you can take your time.
