Grower-Buyer Meetings

 
Grower-buyer meetings

Meet with restaurant owners, chefs, distributors, and grocers to discuss your products and the possibility of a match. Grower-buyer meetings are typically 15–20 minutes long, allowing for a brief time to make introductions, exchange business information, and possibly make a match between what you produce and what each buyer needs.  There are no promises made and no contracts signed on site; it’s just a chance for you to open a door and follow up later. For growers who are just getting started, this is a great opportunity to learn about individual buyer requirements.

To prepare, review our tips and suggestions for farmers on what materials to bring and questions to ask.
