Illinois grows and processes a lot of food. And this weekend is a showcase for all of it and more at the state fairgrounds.
The Department of Agriculture’s 19th annual Illinois Products Expo gives attendees the chance to talk to food makers, graze their offerings and buy what you like. Morgan Booth with the IDOA says Illinois products rum the gamut from edibles to smellables.
If you want to go, head to the Orr Building at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday. Its five bucks to get in, kids are free and so are the food samples.
