Illinois Product Expo returns to Orr Building
March 2, 2022
The Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA) will host the Illinois Product Expo on March 5 and 6 in the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds. For 23 years the Expo has brought Illinois food companies and consumers together to explore Illinois by sampling products, relaxing in the Illinois Wine Garden, enjoying food demonstrations and stocking up on favorite Illinois products. New this year, $5 for 5. Buy five products and IDOA will give you $5 Expo Cash in appreciation for supporting Illinois agriculture.
“We’re excited to be back in person for our 23rd Illinois Product Expo,” said Jackie Sambursky, IDOA Bureau Chief of Marketing. “Showing support for our Illinois food companies means more now than ever after many companies were unable to participate at in-person promotional events during the pandemic.
Some of the vendors include: The Homestead Bakery, ReMARKable Caramels, Rolling Lawns Farm, Ropp Jersey Cheese, Jon Ellis Woodworking, Peter’s Produce Smoked Cheese and Goods, Turasky Meats, Hapburger’s Signature Seasonings, Uncle Joe’s Sauces and Homegrown By Heroes participant Windy Hills Farms and Gardens.
The Illinois Product Expo is sponsored by the Illinois Department of Agriculture, Illinois Farm Bureau, Illinois Wine, FFA, Prairie Farms, and Turasky Meats.
