“We’re selling the best products North Carolina has to offer,” said Myrtle Earley, an NCDA&CS marketing specialist who works with the Specialty Foods Association and organizes the event each year. “This is a great opportunity for local companies to gain exposure and an even better opportunity for consumers to sample and buy locally made products for the holidays.”
Vendors will have a variety of sauces, cookies, salsas, chocolates, crackers, peanuts, pickles, butters, dressings and more. The products make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, friends and family.
The Southern Christmas Show runs through November 22 at the Park Expo and Conference Center in Charlotte. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays through Tuesdays and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. all other days.
If you can’t make the show, be sure to download the Dish This! Catalog from the N.C. Specialty Foods Association. The catalog features many of the products available at the show, as well as other products from even more local companies.
