Sysco is a company familiar to many in the Mason area, particularly those in the food service industries. What many may not be aware of is that Sysco is constantly searching out new producer markets to meet the increasing demand for "fresh, locally-grown produce."
They have now partnered with Fort Mason Smokehouse and Hill Country Farms to not only secure such a product; but, they will also be able to provide a market for local growers at which to sell their items.
On Thursday, October 15 at 6:00 p.m., Sysco and Hill Country Farms will hold a free catfish dinner to explain this concept to anyone in the local area who might be interested in finding new ways to market their produce. The dinner will be held at the Fort Mason Park Community Building, and an RSVP is requested to better determine the amount of food to prepare. Call 347-5406 to save your place today.
