The Slow Food Show showcases local food entrepreneurs who are committed to building the regional food and farming economy through sustainable sourcing and job creation in the production of their artisanal products. Fair food efforts include:
- Maintaining production facilities in New York City, or New York State, in the case of co-packing or on-farm production;
- Using principal ingredients that are produced primarily in our region in a sustainable and humane way or, if from afar, that are traded in a fair or direct manner;
- Eshewing artificial ingredients.
The Slow Food Show includes a VIP hour (noon – 1 p.m.) to encourage attendees to meet the artisans and sample their goods in an intimate setting. Public tastings begin at 1 p.m. with the opportunity to sample products, chat with the producers, and purchase showcased products and small batch beers from the extensive beer list of Jimmy’s No. 43.
Proceeds from this event support the programs of Fare Trade NYC and not-for-profit Slow Food NYC, including Slow Food NYC’s Urban Harvest, an educational program in twelve New York City schools and at a summer urban farm.
