Feast Local Foods Marketplace is back for the second year in Rochester, MN at the Mayo Civic Center.  


This year our industry only tradeshow 
will be on Friday, December 4th. 
space On Saturday, December 5th, the doors will open to the public for the festival at 9AM. 
On Friday, December 4th, Feast Local Food Marketplace will hold its second industry-only tradeshow. Exclusively for food growers, makers, and buyers, the conference will offer a range of workshops, access to technical assistance, and plenty of opportunities for networking. Growers and foodmakers will gain information on expanding sales, accessing new markets, and scaling up their oper­ations. Buyers will learn how to more effectively source more local and regional foods.   Come hungry to the region's second annual local food festival marketplace. Farmers and foodmakers will showcase and sell their products at over 100 exhibit booths, chefs will demonstrate locally sourced recipes, and more. The festival will include a children’s activity area, DIY and healthy living workshops, and a local beer and wine tasting event (additional cost for beer/wine/spirit tasting). Come with your personal wish list and consider all of the foodies in your life who'd love a local gift. 



Feast Festival & Tradeshow was created by the FEAST Local Food Network.  The network is a partnership of many organizations, businesses, and individuals committed to growing a sustainable, local and regional food system which encourages innovation.

The event was created to see current local food producers and businesses in Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin flourish and new businesses get established.  This event gives businesses the opportunity to both connect with the public and buyers through the festival and tradeshow days.  By developing a food system that continues to support local producers and foodmakers, we are also supporting the economic development in our region.  This event was made to help with the growth!
