As a proud supporter and inaugural partner of the Sacramento Farm-to-Fork movement, General Produce is pleased to provide locally grown produce for this year’s kick-off event, “Bubbles & Berries.”
As one of the area’s oldest produce distributors, General Produce relies on their long-lasting relationships with California’s premier growers to source the best the state has to offer. The Sunday brunch will take place in the Kay district of downtown Sacramento on June 7 and will feature made-to-order options prepared by 4 Diamond Award-winning Dawson’s at the Hyatt Regency.
“We’re excited about our third year in association with the Farm-to-Fork events” said Traci Ennis, Foodservice Sales Manager of General Produce. “Each year the festival and venues grow and our involvement does as well. The Bubbles & Berries Brunch is an excellent way to kick off the ‘Taste of Summer’ in our region. We are honored to work with our local farms to supply fresh, local products to The Hyatt and Preservation and Company”.

“We are collaborating on some other lively Farm-to-Fork projects for the fall festival. Without giving too much away, at this time, I would invite consumers, customers and industry partners to watch for news on our social media feeds. Our involvement with local growers and businesses dates back to the 1930’s. For it to take shape in the form of a celebration of this magnitude gives credence to many multi-generational, family businesses”, says Linda Luka, Director of Marketing & Communications.
