Calling all Chefs & Institutional Food Producers!
If you've been looking for more sources for local foods to serve at your restaurant, hotel, catering business, hospital, school, or other institution, join us at the 7th Annual Farmer + Chef Connection! The cornerstone of the event is the Suppliers’ Marketplace, a vendor fair which features exclusively Arizona food producers and distributors. Buyers will mingle with local purveyors of quality dairy, meats, produce, baked goods, alcohol, and other value-added products. Join us and make your connection!
Food and Beverage producers of all kinds will line the rooms of the Tucson Convention Center for the Suppliers' Marketplace from 11am-4pm. Here is a sneak peek at a few of this year's vendors:
At the conclusion of the Suppliers' Marketplace, all attendees are invited to the Local Foods & Awards Reception
, hosted by Bite Magazine
from 4pm-6pm. At the reception, attendees can continue networking and building relationships over a locally-prepared meal while congratulating their colleagues who are recognized for their efforts in promoting Arizona's local food economy.
