"From comfort foods to healthy lifestyle options, this festival truly offers something for everyone. An event of this scale being accessible to the general public is a rare and exciting way to explore new options and sample products before buying them in store." -Jen Cafferty, Founder and CEO
SAN MATEO, Calif. (PRWEB) October 16, 2019
Nourished: The Gluten Free, Allergy & Specialty Diet Festival, formerly The Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo, is excited to return to the San Francisco area. The Bay Area stop of the Festival will return to San Mateo County Event Center, Fiesta Hall, November 16-17 2019.
In 2019, all Nourished Festival locations will provide expanded offerings to better accommodate the most popular food lifestyles. In addition to the existing Gluten-Free and Nut-Free zones, Paleo, Keto, and Plant-Based products will bring variety and educational opportunities to everyone living a gluten-free lifestyle. As in the past, all products at the festival will be gluten free.
At the Nourished Festival, attendees will have one-on-one moments with over 75 brands exhibiting the best products for food sensitivities, food allergies and specialty diets. The festival also provides the opportunity to sample and purchase products, meet founders, receive coupons and attend free educational presentations hosted by industry-respected speakers.
While all products at the Festival are gluten free, many exhibitors will also showcase products free from the top eight allergens - and beyond. The Nourished Festivals are managed by The Nourished Group, with a team fluent in gluten-free living, celiac disease, and food allergies - and the rising need to find safe and delicious food and lifestyle products for any specialty diet. Presented by allergen-friendly sponsor Enjoy Life Foods, this event is family friendly and ideal for anyone following a specialty diet lifestyle.
“Our festivals nourish the needs of the entire food community - whether its those with celiac disease, autism, autoimmune or inflammatory conditions or those committed to living a healthy lifestyle,” says Nourished Festival founder, Jen Cafferty. “With comfort foods like pizza and baked goods to healthy lifestyle options like protein bars and probiotic drinks, this festival truly offers something for everyone. An event of this scale being accessible to the general public is a rare and exciting way to explore new options and sample products before buying them in store.”
A sample of this year’s exhibitors includes:
- Santa Barbara’s Lilac Patisserie, a dedicated gluten-free bakery and cafe that ships nationwide.
- Lark Ellen Farm featuring Grain-Free Granola including new limited edition Gingerbread flavor for the holidays!
- Bay Area’s Marin Gourmet featuring vegetarian products - like their artichoke, green olives, capers and garlic dip - made from fresh ingredients grown in Northern California.
- Local favorite Odd Bagel, providing gluten-free bagels to the Bay Area and beyond!
