Meet Your Maker

Farm Folk City Folk and Local Food First are hosting their third annual Meet Your Maker event on March 14th in Fort Langley, BC. Billed as speed dating for farmers, the event brings together farmers, fishers, ranchers, food processors, distributors, retailers, and food services eager to do business and make connections with each other. A farmer might be looking to find a chef to sell his heritage tomatoes to, or a small producer might need a retail outlet for her new olive tapenade, a chef might be looking for a regular supply of greens. The event is based on the Portland Farmer-Chef Connection. Meet Your Maker not only creates relationships between food businesses, but it helps to increase local food production.
