Demos & Events

Vendor Demos

We love to sample products for our customers, and it is very helpful for local producers/farmers to sample their products themselves in our stores. It gives you direct contact with customers and allows the customer the opportunity to try your local product, learn how it is unique and how it differs from similar products, and make a personal connection to you and your farm or business thereby building brand loyalty and ongoing support for your local business.
