Our Specialty Food & Beverage Tasting is THE MOST highly anticipated event for legislators each year and a chance for producers to highlight the importance of grants and funding for their industry. We’ve also invited members of Vermont Retail & Grocers Association (VRGA) to leverage producer visibility to potential buyers. This event will lead to increased awareness and sales of these fantastic Vermont-made foods and beverages.
