2013 Incredible Edible Gluten Free Fair a Success

2013 marks the seventh year of the Incredible Edible Gluten Free Fair. This year was the largest and most successful event to date. It is estimated that 118 vendors and  4,000 gluten free foodies made their way to the Denver Merchandise Mart last Sunday, August 18th. Compare these numbers to the 2007 count of 35 vendors and 400 attendees. It is a small way to measure the success, influence and support of this community. We have had a table at the the Incredible Edible Gluten Free Fair for the last three years and we just love the atmosphere. Where else do you get to hear phrases like:

"I don't have to worry about what I eat here!"
"I have never been able to eat a whoopie pie before!"
"This is the only place I let my son eat whatever he wants."

Each year we make more and more goodies for samples. This year we passed out banana muffins, ginger spice muffins, pie crust, chocolate chip cookies and whoopie pies. Over 4,000 little bites of food gone in six hours! Yes, it was crazy. Yes, it was a lot of work. Yes, it was worth it! Thank you!
