We're a network of Vermont Chefs, Farmers, Food Artisans, and Diners.

Local Food Matchmaker 2016

The Matchmaker is open to:

  • Buyers of Vermont Grown, Raised or Processed Foods - chefs, supermarkets, co-ops, restaurants, hotels, institutions, schools, distributors, and food processors in search of Vermont ingredients for commercial purposes.  
  • Sellers of Vermont Grown, Raised or Processed Foods - Vermont farmers and food processors as well as Vermont Food Distributors

This event gives a variety of food buyers the time to meet face-to-face with Vermont farmers and food processors. It is a bit like "speed dating" but you'll be making buyer/seller connections instead of a love connection. We will provide both Vermont Local Food Trade Show space as well as "speed meeting" time. 

What: Vermont Local Food Matchmaker
Where: Hilton Burlington at 60 Battery Street
When: Friday, April 29, 2016 - timing tba
Registration: $20 per person. Space is limited for sellers in each food category to ensure diversity and broad product representation.
