Local Food & Gift Show

Fall Local Food & Gift Show – Sunday, August 10, 2014

The Midwest Pantry Local Food & Gift Show is your one stop shop for hard to find, locally sourced wholesale products.  Locally sourced products continue to be a fast growing sector in both gift and grocery, yet finding store ready products available in wholesale quantities can be time consuming. The Midwest Pantry Local Food & Gift Show is a private event, designed to connect wholesale buyers with qualified, professional, local producers.
