The Concept

 

Consumers will have an incredible array of choices when it comes to purchasing legal recreational cannabis in the new few months. To make informed decisions, we’re offering the opportunity for growers to meet the community and openly talk about their products.

 

Our vision is to create a space where the smallest growers have the opportunity to showcase next to the largest growers.

 

Our mission is to educate the community so they know what to look for when they go to OCS locations in the fall.

 

We will be recreating the farmer’s market experience but with legal growers. Since the growers cannot display or sell actual products, they will be challenged to come up with creative ways to showcase their brands to the community.

 

Speakers, live entertainment coupled with food and drink will make the event informative and fun.
