Flavorful freebies


The 14th annual Illinois Products Expo at the Illinois State Fairgrounds is a great place to get introduced to foods grown and products made in this state. More than 70 companies will have free food samples and items for purchase, such as soy candles and agricultural-based soap and lotions. Don’t miss an event favorite, the Illinois wine and cheese garden. More than 20 Illinois wineries will have wine for purchase by the sample size, glass and bottle. All attendees also get the chance to win one of many door prize gift baskets. The Illinois Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Marketing and Promotion is coordinating the expo.
