The public will have the unique opportunity to purchase exciting food products at the Local Food Show. Starting at noon, the public will be able to learn about these products as well and purchase directly from vendors.
Consumers are continually placing high importance on purchasing locally-produced products for more reasons than ever. Economist Michael Shuman stated that just in the city of Detroit, shifting 20 percent of food spending would increase annual output by nearly half a billion dollars – and more than 4,700 jobs would be created, paying $125 million more in earnings.
A partial list of companies in attendance includes:
• Angry Irishman Hot Sauce
• Cocina Al Sol
• Cooper’s Mill & Market
