Just Two Days Until the Fancy Food Show! June 26 2015
This Sunday marks the start of the Specialty Food Association’s Fancy Food Show in New York City and the first ever Specialty Food Week. I’ve had the pleasure of attending a few of these shows and let me tell you, it is a food lover’s dream come true. The show will take place at the Jacob Javitz Center where there will be more than 180,000 products from more than 2,500 exhibitors! That is A LOT of food.
The difficult part about the show is deciding where to go and what to sample. You don’t have room for everything so you have to be pretty particular about what you decide to taste. I read somewhere to only taste something if it is necessary in your decision making. Since it is my job to make sure everything in our marketplace is delicious, tasting is a necessity. Luckily, the show is over three days, so I can pace myself as I make my way up and down the aisles.
I know it is going to be a busy weekend but cannot wait to see what new and exciting products I will find. I am also eager to visit with some of our current suppliers including the team from Rococo Chocolates and World Excellent Products.
Stay tuned for more news from the Fancy Food Show and be ready for a lot of great additions to our marketplace.
