The 12th annual FamilyFarmed Good Food Festival & Conference will be held from March 24 through 26 at the Chicago UIC Forum, bringing together consumers, producers, buyers, top chefs, experts and investors to celebrate the fast-growing Good Food movement.

Visitors can shop for local foods at the Good Food Marketplace; learn from chef demonstrations by Rick Bayless, Paul Kahan and others; attend do-it-yourself workshops on the Organic Valley Good Food Commons; introduce kids to Good Food at the Purple Asparagus Kids’ Corner and get lunch at the Good Food Court at this family-friendly event. There’ll even be an Urban Farm Bus Tour.

Those with a business interest in Good Food or who just want to learn more about the movement’s key issues may attend the Thursday Good Food Finance and Innovation Conference and the Friday Industry, School Food and Policy Day, which includes the oldest and largest industry showcase focused on local and sustainable food.
