Where: Creston, B.C.

When: November 3 & 4, 2023

The Food and Buyer Expo is coming to Creston this November, with vendors and attendees alike getting excited to take part.

"Back in 2018, the Columbia Basin Trust hosted an agriculture forum at Saint Eugene's just outside of Cranbrook, where food producers came together" said Shauna Fidler, event co-ordinator, "and one of the main take-aways of that event was that producers in our region wanted a regional industry only event for them, that would create opportunities to come together and network but also to find opportunities from buyers and market places. So the Food and Buyer Expo was born."
