Produce Marketing Association: Fresh Summit Convention – Certified American Grown Pavilion
October 28, 2021 – October 30, 2021. The Fresh Summit, a production of the Produce Marketing Association, is an event where every segment of the global fresh produce and floral supply chain brings together buyers and sellers. Certified American Grown will have a collaborative pavilion at this year’s event, with 6 to 8 farms participating from around the country.
Have you ever wondered where the beautiful flowers and foliage in your bouquet come from? Have you ever closed your eyes and been transported to another place or time by the sweet scent of a garden rose or the intoxicating fragrance of a lily ? Have you ever imagined yourself standing in a field of flowers? We can help.
Our unique events connect all aspects of the floral industry from farmer, to wholesaler, to retailer to consumer through influential & magical experiences. Whether you join us for an intimate Field to Vase dinner on the farm or witness the versatility of our flowers in action at the prestigious Sylvia Cup Design Competition, our events showcase the many stories that make up American Grown.
We look forward to safely bringing events back in the near future. Please make sure to sign up for our emails to be kept up to date as we share more information.
