This year two of our favorite events combine into one. The Farm to Table conference has joined forces with the Pittsburgh Home & Garden Show to kickoff spring. With a local focus, you’ll be able to shop with and meet 60+ local farmers, food producers, wineries, distilleries and breweries.
Here’s some of the vendors we’re most excited about!
Did you ever hear the saying “Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”? Grow Pittsburgh is doing just that. They teach people the benefits of gardening to the neighborhood and how to do it. From Community Gardens to Urban Farms, Grow Pittsburgh always offers an opportunity to give back to your community.
The Kefir Chicks
Healthy never tasted so good! Water kefir is like a pop (soda for you out-of-towners) with some health benefits. The Kefir Chicks water is raw, good for your gut, organic, dairy-free, non-GMO and vegan so it’s good for everyone. Try one of their 15+ flavors from the Ligonier Country Market or stock up on them at the PGH Home & Garden Show!
Rent the Chicken
Sick of running to the store for eggs? Get farm fresh eggs right in your backyard! With Rent the Chicken, run your own mini egg farm and get a fresh breakfast staple. You’ll probably fall in love with your chickens but don’t worry – you have the option to adopt them afterwards!
