Northern California Good Food Showcase

(This event is not affiliated with the University of California) 

The Good Food Showcase is a trade show and networking event that connects institutional buyers to growers and distributors throughout the Bay Area and across California. Attending the event will give you access to many sources of CA grown, sustainable produce, meats, grains and other products for your cafeteria. 

This is the event of the year for expanding, celebrating, and connecting to the good food movement across our communities.
