As we put the final programming details into place for the 2013 Farm to Market Connection, we are opening registration to our members and food friends throughout the Catskills and beyond.
Join us for a day of networking and education about the most current topics in marketing. Gather with local food advocates from across the region including farmers, retailers, restauranteurs, specialty food producers, distributors, farmers' market staff and economic development practitioners. The Farm to Market Connection is the perfect way to get the growing season off to the right start!
Dozens of past attendees have reported making lasting business connections as a result of attending. Buyers of all scales will be present from local retailers to regional distributors. Educational topics will round out the day's networking.
