Meet the Producers

Meet the Producers

At Eataly, we love to know our producers. And we want you to know them, too! Join us on Saturday, February 24, for our seasonal producer day featuring some of our favorite local producers.

From recycling to bicycling, our daily choices can make a difference. Join Eataly as we choose to support our producers, whose sustainable products are good (taste delicious), clean (don’t hurt the environment), and fair (treat employees well).

From 12-4 p.m. on Saturday, February 24, guests will have the chance to meet the people behind the products across our marketplace to showcase the same wares sold in our marketplace, from locally-cured salumi to cold brew coffee (can’t get much greener than that!).

But we’re in this together. What you choose every day determines what we'll stock on our shelves over time. When you demand quality products, you support the local farmers, fishermen, butchers, bakers, and cheesemakers who produce them. You create a better environment — for eating and beyond.

Our amici from Slow Food Chicago are coming for our seasonal producer day, too! Slow Food is the notion that our environment, culture, and economy are profoundly affected by what we choose to eat. Everyone should have access to high-quality food produced in a sustainable and equitable way. Stop by their table to meet representatives and learn how you can be involved in Slow Food Chicago!
