Newsletter September – October 2015: Let’s Go Local! Produce Showcase
Let’s Go Local! Produce Showcase
Registration is now open for the 3rd Annual Let’s Go Local! Produce Showcase, to be held on Friday, October 23rd from 2:00pm -5:00pm with a reception from 4:30pm-6:00pm at the Leichtag Ranch in Encinitas (441 Saxony Road, Encinitas , CA 92024).
Presented by the San Diego California Health Improvement Partners, the Let’s Go Local! (LGL!) Produce Showcase is an event for institutions, businesses, community organizations, and other entities to develop business relationships and network with local growers and produce distributors. It is set up like a tradeshow, with growers and distributors showcasing the products and services they offer. Potential buyers (institutions, businesses, organizations, etc.) have the opportunity to meet dozens of vendors, the first step in creating long lasting business relationships that help attendees source more healthy, local produce.
Last year, over 200 attendees, 30 growers, and 10 distributors participated. LGL! strives to increase awareness of how community well-being is tied to a healthy food system. By building a strong market for our local farms, we are building a healthier community. For more information and to register, please visit www.2015letsgolocal.eventzilla.net.
