Food fairs are one of the best places to go if you want to explore not just new foods, but also specialties around the metro. From your weekend supermarket local food fair to unique gastronomic experiences you will never regret.
If you will ask me, going to a food fair will help me complete my pantry; try new delicacies; meet fellow foodie; and a lot more. It is like a space travel that even though I won’t be physically in the place where the food originated, I can get a taste of it.
But first, a Food Fair Guide 😎
Food Fair or expos can be a food festival, food showcase, culinary showdown, a gastronomic experience, and much more. Going to this kind of event will definitely take you to another place just tasting and seeing some of them.
How do you prepare for a Food Fair? I listed some tips to help you prepare for your next food fair trip.
Do your research
Check our blog for the list of these fairs. 👊 Narrow down your choices in what you want to experience. You may want to consider checking your allergies too. You don’t want to get sick in the middle of your adventure.
Check the opening dates, special activities, highlights, and other activities that you can try. You may also check the ticket prices and its inclusions.
We do not want you to be hungry, but we also do not want you to be full and not able to experience the food they have. Eat a small snack and bring water a water with you.
By doing this, you will be able to dig into food samples and eat the sumptuous offerings from different food vendors. You don’t want to drool over a food because your tummy surrendered already.
Bring a Buddy or Come Alone
Good things are best shared with someone. If your best friend happens to like the same cuisine as yours, tag him/her along. It is always nice to exchange food views with someone.
But, if you are planning to go solo, it’s a good thing too. You will be able to network with fairgoers and meet new friends. If you are food entrepreneur, you might be able to find a new supplier too.
Do not forget your Shopping List
As mentioned, some of these fairs will be a showcase of products. It could be from abroad or the province. List what you want to get, like a specialty atsara, wild bee honey, and the like.
This will help you stay focus on your shopping goals and avoid unnecessary buys. It could be your grocery list or a food gift list. If you don’t have any idea what to get, you may list general entries like spices or bottled goods.
Capture the moment
If you are this one person who loves documenting his/her life, you may want to capture this moment for your food scrapbook. Save some for your Instagram stories to help promote the event and at the same time meet a fellow food buddy too.
Enjoy every step you make around the fair. Most of them are once a year so brace yourself and let us start the rundown.
