The event room is located on a first floor of the Professional Development Center, near easily accessible parking in the Le Jeune Chef parking lot; there will be signs posted to direct participants. Bring a wagon to pull items inside, if that is easier. Each participant will have a 6-foot table space to display their wares for trade. Produce, meat, bakery items, cheese, soaps, canned goods, fiber products, and other farm produced products are welcome. The number of similar goods will be restricted, so variety is encouraged.
