Good Food Mercantile’s a trade show intended to celebrate and support the Good Food Awards, its esteemed flagship program.
Brooklyn Eats costs $10 to register for the public and it’s free to those in the food or hospitality business.
Those lucky enough to snag a ticket to last month’s Brooklyn Eats trade show had no hard time finding plenty of innovative local food and drinks. Here are some of our favorite finds.
Not only are our CSAs in full swing (only a week or so away from the Annual Zucchini Wallop), but our calendars are also packed—incredible eating-and-drinking events are popping up all over the city and beyond. Here, our editors give you a sampler of what they’re attending.
“It’s definitely time for a trade show in Brooklyn focused exclusively on the borough’s talented tastemakers,” said Edible Brooklyn publisher Stephen Munshin to kick off Brooklyn Eats, a showcase of more than 100 local food and drink makers organized by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce as this borough’s answer to Manhattan’s Fancy Food Show.
This Wednesday nearly a hundred vendors will come together in South Williamsburg for the first ever food and beverage trade show in the borough of Kings (yippee! the list of participating vendors is basically the list of anyone in Brooklyn we’d ever want to interview about artisanal anything). With so many makers in one place–everything from kombucha, kimchi and jam to beef jerky and gin–the level of DIY deliciousness will be off the charts.
