The Locavore ~ Buy Local event for 2015 is the Intelligencer’s reader choice for Best Business or Chamber of Commerce Event in 2015. Thank you to all of the readers for choosing this event to receive this award.
Superior Woodcraft and the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce collaborated to produce the 6th annual Bucks Locavore event, one of the largest and few of its kind in the area encouraging business networking while offering a fresh perspective on what it means to shop the local vendors. The buy-local movement in Bucks County has matured in the last several years as residents and businesses alike unify to keep dollars circulating within their own communities and, as a result, are experiencing a markedly stronger revenue growth.
The 2015 Locavore was held on a snowy evening in February – but that didn’t stop us from achieving record attendance. 850 guests came out to experience and celebrate local businesses while having the opportunity to network with fellow attendees. 30 of the region’s top local producers, including Ayala Herbal Water, Bill’s Best BBQ Sauces, Blue Moon Acres, The Brown Soap Company, Bucks County Brewery, Bucks County Preserves, Buckingham Valley Vineyard, Castle Valley Mill, Crooked Eye Brewery, Confection Perfection, Doylestown Brewing Company, Doylestown Food Coop, Giggling Goat Dairy, Graziano’s Products, Flint Hill Farms, Fulper Family Farms, Hewn Spirits, Homestead Coffee Roasters, Just Food, Laurie’s Chocolates, Mainly Mushrooms, The Market at Del Val College, Nina’s Waffles, Olive Oil Etc., Perfect Day Coffee, Pig and Hen Catering, Rabbit Run Farm, Rose Bank Winery, Sweet Victory Gluten and Dairy Free Treats and Wycombe Vineyards, were on hand to offer samples.
Keep your calendars open for the 7th Annual Bucks Locavore event, slated for late February 2016. You won’t want to miss it!
