    Good Food Mercantile

    The next Good Food Mercantile will be on June 27 in NYC from 12-5pm.

    Crafters interested in showing please email samantha@seedlingprojects.org, retailers interested in attending can sign up here

    Seedling Projects and the Good Food Retailers Collaborative are proud to present the Good Food Mercantile, the un-trade show for tasty, authentic, responsible food. This one-day, intimate gathering of like-minded food crafters and retailers offers the same sized booths to everyone, a start time conducive to arriving well rested, and booth fees at a fraction of the price of other trade shows. This is the Good Food Movement’s answer to building commerce and community.

    While traditional trade shows convene tens of thousands of buyers, many are not prepared to work with businesses whose core aspirations don’t include unbridled growth, and smaller companies can find themselves lost amongst a sea of thousands of booths. The Good Food Mercantile is a different kind of gathering. Open exclusively to past Good Food Award winners and finalists and members of the Good Food Guild, it is an opportunity for thoughtful, responsible American food crafters to connect with the growing community of retailers that value quality, care and craftsmanship.

    If you are interested in learning more, attending, or showing at the Good Food Mercantile, email samantha@seedlingprojects.org.

    SHOWING The Good Food Mercantile is limited to 95 food producers who have placed in the Good Food Awards or passed the sustainability vetting process to become a Good Food Guild Member. Together, this community is 700 businesses strong and hails from 47 states. In selecting attendees, focus will be placed on ensuring a diverse set of food and drink is represented, with the goal of two-thirds regional and one-third national producers at the gathering,

    *Winners and finalists who are not yet members of the Good Food Guild will be asked to join in order to show.
