This is a unique opportunity to network and lay the groundwork for getting more local food into schools, restaurants, hospitals, universities, and businesses. This event is a chance to foster relationships between farmers, producers and local buyers.

The Matchmaker is open to:

BUYERS of Gorge grown, raised or processed foods: chefs, supermarkets, specialty markets, restaurants, hotels, institutions, schools, distributors, and food processors in search of local ingredients for commercial purposes

SELLERS of Gorge grown, raised or processed foods: farmers and food processors

Everyone who plans to attend is encouraged to bring business cards to ensure successful networking and foster opportunities for follow-up. Farmers are encouraged to bring a product and price list and buyers should come prepared to discuss the details of desired products (crop quality, quantity, packaging, availability, etc.)
