What’s happening with The Kitchen?  The Food Producer Coop is going to continue, as long as people want to help make it happen.

The tree represents the community..each branch is vibrant, colorful, strong, fruitful, prosperous shining together.

After a year I realized out of all of learning how to find the right building, knowing all the details of doing this, what is required,  go get the funding, meeting and speaking to people, they tell me what I need next.  Working with a Commercial Leasing Agent. Formed an advisory team and a whole bunch of other things…

At the end I just said, that “I need help I can’t do this alone.”

This is one reason why perhaps you have not heard much about it anymore.

There are two of us who are willing to see this through. Still would like to have 3 more people who are passionate about joining forces to have a shared kitchen, who want to expand their Food business, get their marketing together, or scale up, or launch their food business or just get more sales.  This is a volunteer position.  The two kitchen locations are in Livermore and/or Sonoma.

We’ll be offering Marketing support and in whatever the members say they want help with.

Membership is $300.00/year

The Craftsman in SoMa, San Jose, CA

1:00 pm Set up and vendor load in
2:00 – 5:00pm Suppliers Marketplace
5:15 – 7:30pm Reception – Cash Bar

Vendors must be prepared to transact at wholesale levels and/or have retail ready products for resale. Farmer+Producer+Chef is a valuable experience for any food business to attend, however in order to ensure we have the biggest impact and greatest success for buyers, we ask that only those businesses prepared to transact at these levels purchase a vendor package.

– We strongly encourage our vendors to take up their entire table space; bring colorful displays, info boards about your business, fliers, display equipment, etc. that will catch buyers’ attention. With the exception of select sponsors, vendors may not expand their display beyond the borders of their table.
- You will need to bring any and all necessary equipment for serving samples, including cold storage (i.e. coolers), ice, serving utensils, platter, sample plates/cups, etc.

– Alcohol providers, will need to contact Joe  at:  thecraftsmansj@gmail.com  to arrange to bring your product in on site.


Sponsor the Reception

If you elect to sponsor the reception with a donation of your products, your business will be recognized on the program and table signage. This is a great extra exposure opportunity.
- Please register as soon as possible, in order to help us plan accordingly. Registration for vendor spaces will be accepted up until 9/12/15 or until the tables are taken.
