The 2013 Buy Local Food Trade Show and Seminar is designed to facilitate connections and stimulate trade between local buyers and sellers of specialty crop food products. This event is organized by SBN (sbnmass.org) in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MassGrown), Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA) (namanet.org), and Health Care Without Harm (noharm.org). The SBN Buy Local Tradeshow is supported in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, (mass.gov/massgrown) and space provided by The Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center (seaportboston.com). Through this grant, our focus is on promoting specialty crops, but we also hope to engage other local food producers and interested buyers from Massachusetts and New England.
Who should register for this event?
- Specialty crop growers and producers and non-specialty crop local food growers and producers (see USDA definitions below) desiring to sell wholesale to restaurants, schools, hospitals, and other institutional buyers.
- Restaurants, schools, hospitals, groceries, government agencies, and other institutional buyers interested in trading with local food suppliers and who desire to buy more locally produced products from growers, fishermen, and value added producers from Massachusetts and New England.
- Businesses that have a vested interest in local food and networking with food related businesses to become an exhibitor.
