Local Food Fair

Come one, come all to the region's largest local food celebration.

2019 Local Food Fair

Saturday, February 9th, 11 am – 3 pm

at SentryWorld

The Local Food Fair  is Farmshed’s premier outreach event, bringing together producers, consumers, local businesses, and educators to celebrate community and the food that’s grown within it. Come one, come all to the region’s largest local food celebration!

The Local Food Fair is always an amazing event for so many reasons, some of them include:

  • Introducing new people to local food resources within Central Wisconsin
  • Generating increased demand for local and sustainably produced food through Weducation and promotion
  • Supporting the growth and development of local farms and food-related businesses
  • Providing networking and collaborative opportunities for farmers, restaurants, businesses and organizations, and expanding the conversation around the local food economy.


The FOOD and CHEF Competition

Local Chefs will try their hand at creating a one of a kind potato dish unique to their style along with a friendly competition to see whose dish is best with more points for using local ingredients.  




Over 70 exhibitors from local farms, businesses, and educational organizations sell their goods or share about their programs at this event.  It is also the release of the 2019 Farm Fresh Atlas of Central Wisconsin! Registration opens soon so please stay tuned.



This event is made possible by the support of businesses and individuals who want to see a thriving local food community.  If you are interested in sponsoring the Fair, please fill out this brief interest form and we will be in touch.

We Believe: 1) Food should be grown in a sustainable manner 2) People should know how to buy, grow, harvest, preserve, and prepare local foods 3) The public should know local farmers 4) Farmers should know who eats their food
