Good Food EXPO – The Midwest’s Premier Showcase for Local and Sustainable Food

Greet spring and celebrate our region’s growing local food community! The 14th Annual Good Food EXPO invites you to two dynamic days that connect all the people active in the Good Food community – farmers, food producers, investors, trade buyers, policy makers, activists, families and Good Food lovers.

FamilyFarmed’s Good Food EXPO kicks off on Friday, March 23 with the Good Food Trade Show: Production, Policy & Industry Exchange. Industry stakeholders come together for a day of exhibiting, educational programming, networking opportunities and free farmer training workshops. Stay for the Good Food Industry Networking and Meet the Buyers Reception.

The Good Food Festival returns Saturday, March 24, bringing together families, producers, top chefs and experts to celebrate the fast-growing Good Food movement.

Attend workshops, shop for local foods, watch celebrity chef demonstrations, have your backyard soil tested, connect kids to food with the Purple Asparagus Kids’ Corner, eat at the Good Food Court and much more.

Learn to brighten your food and drinks with homemade vinegars in the Master Class with author Michael Harlan Turkell, and Abe Conlon and Adrienne Lo from Fat Rice. (Ticket required.)
