KC Food Circle's
Expo 2010

This is to advise that the Kansas City Food Circle is holding our farmers exhibition
events (our annual EAT LOCAL! EXPO) again in 2010 on the same two (2) weekends and locations as in 2009.

The main purpose of these events is to introduce new people in the metro area to the joys of eating local organic and free range foods.

The Shawnee, Ks. event will be Saturday, March 27, 2010 from 9 AM to 2 PM in the City of Shawnee Civic Center.

The Independence, Mo. event will be Saturday, April 3 from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM in the Roger T. Sermon Community Center.

We do not require that farmer vendors join the KC Food Circle or be certified organic.
However we do require farmer-vendors to sign our Producers Pledges which can be downloaded at
There are provisions for minor exceptions to our production requirements.

If you are interested in participating please send an email to both organizers listed below and include:
  • your mailing address and phone number
  • which event (or both) you plan to participate in
  • list the products you intend to sell
Registration materials will soon be available online (by e-mail, upon request), and they will be sent out by U.S. Postal Service on or about February 1st. The forms and instructions you receive will reflect the products you intend to sell, ie. especially where a health department permit is needed.
