The high tunnel has been disassembled and the alpacas are safely home. Perhaps the scent of artisanal cheese may linger throughout Hall F of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, but the impressive lineup of local farmers, makers, entrepreneurs, and advocates have returned home to their farms, shops, and offices to continue providing for a righteous food and drink community.

Thanks to incredible sponsors, local exhibitors, gifted presenter, a helpful volunteer team, and everyone who attended, we were able to create a day for discovering and celebrating the local food and drink community and the individuals who make it so gosh darn awesome. From the PF3 Kitchen to the Homesteaders Stage and the Kids’ Corral, demonstrations were engaging, entertaining, and educational. Every turn in the Marketplace promised smiling faces, passionate conversation, plus new ideas and products to discover!

Below is a small snapshot of the day but stay tuned for more photos to come!
