Everything Local Expo Invites Local Farmers to Participate


USDA Grant Allows Free Booth for 40 Farmers



On July 15, 2013, the Mississippi Hospitality & Restaurant Association will be hosting the EVERYTHING LOCAL EXPO at the Hilton Jackson.

>From 4pm until 7 pm, the EVERYTHING LOCAL EXPO will showcase food producers from all over the state. Because of a USDA GRANT, the first 40 growers to respond will be eligible for FREE BOOTH SPACE.

The EVERYTHING LOCAL EXPO will be attended by restaurant owners/managers and the general public. Farmers are encouraged to use this as a selling event.

Set up at the Hilton must be complete by 3pm on July 15. Doors open to the public at 4pm.

In addition to the Expo, we will be having the Mississippi’s Best Tomato Sandwich Competition. The MHRA will recruit restaurants to compete.

Participating growers can also showcase their tomatoes in this event. The grant will also provide a product stipend to growers to provide their ‘best in class” tomatoes.

If you would like to take advantage of this FREE opportunity to showcase your product. Call Mike Cashion at 601.608.0223
