3 Easy Steps:

  1. Producers tell us what local food they have for sale and their availability to meet virtually with buyers Feb 13-19.
  2. Buyers tell us what local food they’re looking for.
  3. AMT makes this information available, and facilitates producers and buyers meeting virtually about wholesale opportunities.
