Registration Now Open for Maryland’s Best Expo 2024

ANNAPOLIS, MD (November 2, 2023) ~ The Maryland Department of Agriculture is hosting the Maryland's Best Expo on Tuesday, January 9, 2024 at the Naval Academy Stadium in Annapolis. The event is designed to help farmers make connections with local, regional, and national buyers.

Maryland Department of Agriculture Secretary Kevin Atticks said, "Farmers are doing the critical work of actually running the farm and growing the food. It's very challenging for them to also be a sales person, a marketing person and an accountant. The Expo is designed to help make the connections so that farms can grow and the farmers can get back to what they do best."

Exhibitors may participate in the expo for a small fee and have the opportunity to place ads in the Maryland's Best Expo Guide – a comprehensive list of all growers in attendance that is distributed to buyers at the event and throughout the year as requested. Buyers may attend for free and all restaurants, schools, institutions, distributors, economic development officials, University of Maryland Extension agents, and regional agricultural marketing officials are invited.
