Fresh food is a better option for healthy living and there will be a variety of freshly harvested farm produce at the GTBank Food and Drink Farmer’s Market. You can shop fresh, organic and quality farm produce from the local farmers and agro-preneurs exhibiting outside the arena.
Maybe your kitchen needs more tools/appliances to give you an easier cooking experience, the 2018 GTBank Food and Drink Fair is the best place to buy them. In partnership with SMEMarkethub, different small businesses dealing on household/kitchen items will exhibit their products at the fair.
Bring your kids along to the event and treat them to a memorable fun experience at the Children’s Play Arena. There will be toys, playpens and, games to keep them busy while you explore the event to the fullest.
