In addition to the Good Food Film Series, the organizing committee of the Good Food Festival & Conference has developed several pre-Festival events to showcase the farmers and ranchers who make the market one of southern California’s treasures and to raise funds to support this September’s Festival & Conference.

At the first of these savory summer events, Craft chef de cuisine John Keenan & pastry chef Shannon Swindle will be roasting whole pigs and serving family-style sides & desserts. Guests will enjoy local beers & wines, listen to live bluegrass, and shop for produce from select farmers from the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market. The event will also include a live auction led by Peter Fetterman 
of the acclaimed Peter Fetterman Gallery at Bergamot Station.

Proceeds from the event will benefit this September’s Good Food Festival & Conference celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market.
