On Sunday, November 2, we will open the doors to the public for a festival themed: “Homegrown for the Holidays.” Farmers and foodmakers will showcase their products at over 100 exhibit booths, chefs will demonstrate holiday cooking, and foodmakers and educators will present an array of interesting workshops. The festival will include a children’s activity area, live music, and a local beer and wine tasting event. Click here for more information.

Monday, November 3 will be an industry-only conference and 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. Click here for information.
