Opportunities for Farmers and Chefs to Meet

There are three Meet the Buyer events scheduled for the first two weeks in November. Farmers will get the chance to meet with large buyers and find out what it would take to start selling to them. Also, there will be “Meet the Chefs” portion of the events at Knox and Carbondale in the afternoon. The session will give an opportunity for chefs and farmers to meet one on one and learn more about the availability of local produce and what chef’s are looking for. Please call 217-528-1563 if you wish to register for either session.
Each event will begin at  9AM, with the Meet the Chefs session occurring in the afternoon. Events are free but seating is limited. RSVP early to reserve your seat. If you have any questions call Illinois Stewardship Alliance at 217-528-1563.
