This workshop is pretty Minnesota local, but there are a number of us  
in the greater 60 mile, or so, radius of the Twin Cities who may be  
interested.

FARMERS: Do you want to expand your market into restaurants, cafes,  
food services, institutions and distributors?

BUYERS: Are you interested in making new connections to purchase local  
products from farmers, producers and farmer-owned co-ops and  
distributors?

We are planning our third annual got local? farmer/buyer networking  
session for November 30th. This event  promotes the local foods  
movement here in Minnesota, and creates opportunities for new farmers  
to enter the  direct sales marketplace. This allows more money to go  
directly to local farmers. Local foods allow people to know where  
their food is coming from, how it is produced, and promotes a fair  
food system. This event will provide opportunities for Farmers/ Buyers  
who are working to create a positive change in the food system in  
Minnesota.

Thank you for your time and help in making this event a success, and  
for more information and to register click on the link below or  
contact Renewing the Countryside. brett at rtcinfo.org.

Thanks,
Renewing the Countryside staff and interns.

If you know of a November e-newsletter or a potential farmer or local  
foods buyer who would be interested - feel free to forward this  
information on to them.
