Food Connects will hold its 2020 Local Food Trade Show on Tuesday, March 3 from 2:30 to 5:30 pm at Stonewall Farm. This event brings together local farmers, producers, and wholesale buyers from southern Vermont and New Hampshire.
Even though this area is abundant in high quality, locally produced food, it is sometimes difficult for wholesale buyers to access these products. Food Connects, an aggregation and distribution food hub operating in southern Vermont and New Hampshire, makes it easy for buyers to purchase hundreds of local products from dozens of local producers.
This trade show highlights products from area farmers and value-added producers who sell through Food Connects. Wholesale buyers working in schools, hospitals, retail, restaurants, and other institutions will have the opportunity to sample local products and meet regional food producers.

WHERE: Stonewall Farm, 242 Chesterfield Rd. Keene, NH 03431, Main Hall on the 2nd Floor of the Learning Center
WHEN: Tuesday, March 3, 2:30 - 5:30 pm (snow date: Thursday, March 5, 2:30 - 5:30 pm)
