Local Specialty Crop + Local Food Trade Show
Location: Curry Student Center, Northeastern University
The Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts (SBN) is offering our 7th Specialty Crop and Local Food Trade Show. The 2018 Local Food Trade Show is designed to facilitate connections and stimulate business relationships between producers and wholesale buyers of local food, with a focus on specialty crop food products in Massachusetts. At this event, buyers will have the unique opportunity to meet nearly 100 farmers and producers who grow and craft some of New England’s finest foods.
This event is ideal for restaurants, retailers and institutional buyers interested in trading with local food suppliers and who desire to buy more locally produced products from growers, fishermen, and value added producers from Massachusetts and New England.
