Food Connects, an aggregation and distribution food hub operating in Windham and Windsor counties of Vermont and Cheshire county of New Hampshire, invites you to the largest LOCAL Food Trade Show. Food Connects sells products from nearly 50 local farmers and value-added producers and will be highlighting all their food hub has to offer to buyers working in schools, hospitals, retail, restaurants and other institutions.

RSVP for a chance to win a collection of local goodies!

This free event is taking place Tuesday, March 20th from 2pm to 4pm at Stonewall Farm in Keene, NH. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample local products, meet regional food producers and learn how easy it is to access all the goods this area has to offer. Are you a local farmer or value-added producer interested in selling through Food Connects? Food hub staff will be on hand to answer questions and to get you started. Come celebrate the bounty of the area!

Heading into their 10th year of operation, Food Connects runs two place based brand identities: Food Connects Food Hub, serving southern Vermont, and Monadnock Menus, serving New Hampshire. They make it easy for wholesale buyers to obtain hundreds of local products from dozens of area producers. Their website and ordering system give buyers access to source-identified produce, meat, dairy, baked items and specialty goods at competitive prices. Buyers get reliable deliveries up to twice a week that fit into their regular schedule. And the best part? When buyers purchase through Food Connects they support their community, just by ordering what they need. Food Connects works hard to open new markets to farmers, strengthen the local economy and support regional food system development.

Food Connects is an entrepreneurial nonprofit organization that delivers locally produced food as well as educational and consulting services aimed at transforming local food systems. Visit www.foodconnects.org for more information.
