Midwest Pantry is a collective of local food companies based in the Midwest. It is our mission to ensure that the local food movement is sustainable. We work to accomplish this mission by creating a healthy community of local producers with shelf-ready products and connecting this community to buyers in the following ways:
1We organize two annual private Local Food & Gift Shows; one in March (spring), the other in August (fall). If you are a licensed and insured producer that makes a quality local product, a store owner or wholesale buyer that is looking for unique local products, or a local business that can support our Show and grow your business, contact us here.
Our next wholesale event is: Midwest Pantry’s Spring 2015 Local Food & Gift Show held in the historic Grain Belt Bottling House at 79 13th Avenue in Nordeast Minneapolis, MN. Monday, March 16th, 2015 from 9:30am-3pm. Click here for map & directions. Wholesale buyers can reserve tickets here, and local producers can register here.
Public shopping events
2We organize two different events for the public to shop and support local producers: 1) The Local Poster Show, which connects local producers and designers to create amazing original screen-printed poster that are sold to raise money for charity. 2) The Shop Small Holiday Market, held on Small Business Saturday each year (the Saturday after Thanksgiving), has been a great hit.
Our next public event is: Shop Small Holiday Market at the St. Anthony Shops in St. Anthony Village, MN. Small Business Saturday, November 28th, 2015 from 11am-3pm. Click here for map & directions. Local producers can register here.
