The 60th Fancy Food Show 2014, New York City
It’s June, which could only mean one thing: The Fancy Food Show is nearly here! This year’s three-day show will take place Sunday, June 29th, through Tuesday, July 1st. Hailed as North America’s largest specialty food & beverage event (let’s just say it’s big), this top-rated show offers an incredible selection in sweets, cheeses, snacks, coffees, meats, ice creams, beverages, and so much more. New products, vendors from over 75 countries, state specialties, and more will keep you entertained for days. In addition, the sofi Awards, educational programs, extra halls, and special new product showcases will hold your interest—and weigh down your poor tummy.
Though Expo West in California was an incredible experience far outweighing even Fancy Food Show expectations, we expect this year to be enjoyable as always. Though lacking anything near the square footage and number of attendees, there’s something comfortable about walking into the always-familiar and still terribly designed Javits Center, and knowing you can always find new morsels from Jordan, cheeses from Italy, and fruits from Chile that can’t been samples or learned about anywhere else.
This year’s sofi Awards is hosted by Dominique Ansel. Yes, the cronut inventor. Is it a bit of a letdown from last year’s Marcus Samuellson, and 2011’s Cat Cora? Absolutely, but perhaps they’ll at least serve cronuts at the after-party. No, really, they better.
What will the trends be this year? More cherries? More gluten-free goods? Or perhaps something new? We’re excited to see what new produce, seasoning, and taste sensations will debut in American markets in the next few years, and this is the place to find just that.
Whether you’re coming as a buyer, retailer, inventor, journalist, or media specialist, you’re guaranteed to love your time at the show.
