Illinois Product Events

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

Illinois Products are items produced, processed and packaged in Illinois. They can range in variety, from foods, goods for the home or workplace, and even technology. Together, their sales help build and strengthen Illinois’ agricultural economy. As a result, these events allow consumers to explore new options while, for some, it’s the best time to find long-time favorites. Likewise, these events provide fun and easy access for wholesalers and retailers to new Illinois-made products.
