The second annual Wisconsin Local Food Expo will take place Tuesday to strengthen the local food economy.
The Sept. 18 event will connect farmers and food operations to large-scale buyers, said Dane County Executive Joe Parisi.
“Our annual local food expo is yet another way Dane County is working to strengthen our local foods economy,” said Parisi. “The expo shows our local buyers that you don’t need to go far to get the best products around, and support our local farm families in the process.”
The expo will include local meat and cheese producers, dessert and baked goods producers, specialty and gourmet item manufacturers and more, said a press release. Sellers and buyers will come together from restaurants, grocery stores and institutions such as hospitals and schools.
Last year’s inaugural expo attracted buys and sellers from 23 counties in Wisconsin.
