New this year: 

Free general admission;

Discussions like Good Food Is Good Medicine and Sustainable Seafood;

Three different farms featured on the bus tour;

And the Good Food Scavenger Hunt for kids!

Attendees can shop for local foods at the Good Food Marketplace; learn from celebrity chef demonstrations with Rick Bayless, Rob Levitt and others; participate in micro workshops on the Organic Valley Good Food Commons; introduce kids to Good Food at the Purple Asparagus Kids’ Corner; get lunch at the Good Food Court; and much more.
