I love being able to say, “I remember when the Slow Food Movement was a budding little baby,” while living in NYC. Now, it’s a full fledged Revolution with strength as well as flavor, and sincerely one of Gia On The Move’s particular favorites! And the holidays couldn’t be a better time for this local community-minded show to come around. Best way to contribute to urban/farming culture and the hundreds of your neighbors from Manhattan to upstate New York who keep your dinner table clean, fresh and delicious!
Slow Food NYC and Astor Center are pleased to collaborate on the third annual Slow Food Show event featuring made in New York, primarily with principle ingredients grown and produced in New York or, if not, fair or direct traded.
The Slow Food Show showcases local food entrepreneurs who are committed to building our regional food and farm economy through the production of their artisanal products.
All of the participants are small-scale and hands-on, sharing a commitment to good, clean, and fair food. They maintain production facilities in New York City, or New York State. In the case of co-packing or on-farm production, they use principal ingredients that are produced primarily in our region in a sustainable and humane way or, if from afar, that are traded in a fair or direct manner. They do not use artificial ingredients.
The public is invited to come and sample products, chat with the producers, and purchase showcased products. Producers at the event include A&B American Style Condiments, Cocktail Crate, Granola Lab, Grown in Brooklyn, Jin’s Journey, Love of JoJo, Inc., Love Sweet Love, Luca & Bosco Ice Cream, Minnie’s Bake Shop, NAFI’S Hot Pepper Condiments, NUTS AND BOLTS Brooklyn, Orwasher’s, Saucy by Nature,
Spicy ‘n Sweet, and The Saucey Sauce Company.

As we work to support the rights of farmers and eaters, we strive to seek a balance. As the GMO debate continues, we invite producers, as a condition of participation in this Slow Food NYC event, to sign this statement:
The Slow Food Show supports the not-for-profit Slow Food NYC Urban Harvest program of good food education for NYC kids at 16 schools, in the Bronx and East Harlem, on the Lower East Side, and in Brooklyn, and at a summer educational urban farm in Brownsville. More than 1,000 Urban Harvest kids each year learn about the importance of good, clean, and fair food to their health, the health of their families and communities, and the health of the planet.
