We really enjoyed meeting vendors from all over that specialize in making sure their products are free of most allergens and even grabbed a few spices from Fresh Jax for our kitchen, which I am now obsessed with. There is a certain excitement that comes from being able to whip out a spice and use it knowing there is nothing hidden inside.
This event is national and she travels all over helping people like me connect with businesses like this which is absolutely needed.
