“Great success! A lively and enthusiastic crowd-wall to wall people-great energy… The location was ideal.” David Doctorow, Whole Foods Market

“I didn’t expect the amount of great customer feedback we got after the Festival!! Customers were coming into our store with shopping lists of foods they had tasted at the show, asking us where to find them in our store!” Melanie Marken, Wild Harvest

“We had a great time, great response, and great sales! We sold out our weekend’s supply on the first day, and had to restock for Sunday, and sold out again. We felt like rock stars!”
