Good Food Awards

Submitted by on January 3, 2013 – 8:27 amNo Comment

One can never have too much good food, eh?

This year, there are 183 finalists from 31 states competing in the Good Food Awards and the 100 winners will be announced during ceremonies January 18, 2013, in the San Francisco (California) Ferry Building (map).

Winners will sample and sell their winning products at a public marketplace the following day. Now in its third year, Good Food Awards will go winners in nine categories: beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, pickles, preserves and spirits.

Tickets for the awards ceremony and for the marketplace are available online.

There were 1,366 entries this year, and range from the producer of Jalapeño Mint Pickles created to reduce food waste at an Austin (Texas) farmers market to Tarentaise cheese, made at an educational farm in Vermont.

In geographic trends this year, Washington, D.C., is emerging as a hub of Good Food, with 14 finalists hailing from its food sheds of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Colorado (10), Washington state (10), Wisconsin (9) and Texas (9) all had strong showings. California had the largest number of Finalists (43), followed by Oregon (21) and New York (17).

To check out a complete list of finalists, go online. The awards are produced by Seedling Projects, part of the sustainable food movement.
