LOCALECOPIA Meet & Greet – Tuesday November 17, 2015

localecopia.8We had the pleasure of being a part of the Localecopia Meet & Greet on Tuesday, November 17, 2015, from 1pm-3pm at The Breakers Palm Beach (www.thebreakers.com). Sprouts! Inc. and Our Wonderful World Media has been a vendor for many years.  We met some awesome people, tasted some great food and took home local grown veggies and fabulous microgreens and sprouts. The Fall event included the selling of local produce and other items, in addition to the usual sampling and exchange of business cards.  Students from the Lincoln Culinary Institute will be doing cooking demonstrations utilizing local ingredients. Whole Foods Market will be in attendance to promote the events at one of their newest Florida locations.

This free event was open to any members of the community interested in local, sustainable business. The event was also open to any cooks, chefs, buyers, students, managers or others in the hospitality community that truly want to become involved in the local movement.
