Illinois Products Expo at the Illinois State Fairgrounds

Illinois Product Events connect the best local food companies with dedicated buy-local consumers. 

From specialty cheeses, noodles, salsa, spices, rubs, sauces, seasonings, Illinois wine and beer, pizza, beef, pork, amazing cakes and breads to lip balm, honey, salad dressings – Illinois Product Events are the most delicious way to support Illinois' local food businesses.

If each of the 4.7 million Illinois households dedicates just $10 per week to the purchase of Illinois products, more than $47 MILLION would be generated for the Illinois economy in one week! Purchasing Illinois products provides a tremendous boost to local Illinois companies – many of which are owned by your friends and neighbors. 

In the unique environment we're all facing, our team has planned new and unique ways to continue and build relationships between Illinois consumers and food companies.
