The 4th Annual Good Food Showcase is an event to connect buyers with local good food businesses from the San Diego County region. Over the last three years (event formerly known as Let's Go Local! Produce Showcase!), this annual Showcase has helped connect hundreds of institutional purchasers with dozens of local farms and other producers. Surveyed buyers from the 2015 Showcase reported purchasing $80,550 in local and sustainable foods as a result of their attendance.
The Good Food Showcase will be held on Friday, December 2, 2016 from 1:00pm-4:00pm at Coastal Roots Farm in Encinitas. The event helps businesses and buyers connect with local growers and the good food movement as a whole - raising up the best practices currently underway in our communities. Every year the showcase makes it easy for good food businesses and distributors to connect with the institutional market, helping to expand our local economy and encouraging more consumption of fresh, healthy fruits, vegetables, and other good food products.
At the Good Food Showcase we strive to increase the education and awareness of how community well-being is tied to a healthy food system. By building a stronger market for our local farms and food producers, we are building a healthier community.
