Local food producers and restaurateurs found a unique way to talk business Monday.

In a speed dating style meeting, area food producers and chefs from eateries like Cafe Discala and Alba sat down to talk one to one.

The producers shared what’s currently available while the chefs gave them feedback on what they’d like to see more of.

“Not only is it delicious and produced right here it helps our local economy,” director Aubrey Martinez says. “We really want to help build that system that it’s easier for everybody to access that local food so it’s easier to bolster our local food system.”
