    Denver and Boulder Producers Tour

    We have partnered with some amazing Colorado producers who support local farmers by turning locally farmed items into delicious preserved bites that are perfect for your refrigerator or pantry.  Each tour will introduce us to two producers. We will see their digs, meet their visionary, and experience two hands-on hours in their world.  The Producers Tour will include delicious catered lunches crafted from local foods and a sampling of preserved food items for you to bring home.
    Ozuke and Rowdy Mermaid
    We will meet at Ozuke in Lafayette and travel to Boulder’s Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha.  After a morning in the kitchen at Ozuke learning to ferment vegetables, we will head to the the Rowdy Mermaid tap room for a locally-grown lunch and kombucha on tap. Once our bellies are full, we will head into the brewery and get to work learning the art of fermenting tea. *Please wear pants and closed-toed shoes. Hairnets will be provided for those not wearing hats.

    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.
