Good Food Festival & Conference
The Good Food Festival celebrates local, sustainable, humane, and fair food. Run by FamilyFarmed, whose mission is to expand the production, marketing, and distribution of locally grown and responsibly produced food, the festival brings together more than 150 farmers and food artisans who display, sample and sell at the Good Food Marketplace. The show is open to the public, and the goal is to help families learn more about cooking and eating seasonally. Attendees can choose a CSA farm share from a local farmer, load up on delicious local foods, and pick up cooking, canning and composting tips from experts and top-ranked chefs.
