Good Food Festival Coming in March




FamilyFarmed’s 13th annual Good Food Festival will be happening March 18 at Chicago’s UIC Forum to celebrate good, local, sustainable, humane and fair food.

            The Festival brings together consumers, producers, top chefs and experts to celebrate the fast-growing Good Food movement. Visitors can shop for local foods at the Good Food Marketplace; learn from celebrity chef demonstrations; participate in DIY workshops on the Good Food Commons; introduce kids to Good Food at the Purple Asparagus Kids’ Corner; enjoy lunch at the Good Food Court; and much more. Plan ahead now by reserving a seat on the Urban Farm Bus Tour, which sells out quickly each year.

 

Location: 725 W. Roosevelt Rd., Chicago. For more information or to buy discounted tickets, visit GoodFoodFestivals.com.
