Local Food & Gift Show

The Midwest Pantry Local Food & Gift Show is your one stop shop for store-ready, licensed & insured, 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. Most products are available in commercial sizes to meet the growing demand from restaurants, delis and food trucks.

The Midwest Pantry Local Food & Gift Show is a private event, designed to connect wholesale buyers with qualified, professional, local producers.
