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.
