We love to have these local businesses at our Expo!

Eat your veggies! That’s what Mom always told us, right?

It’s a convenient, affordable, and natural whole food based nutritional product providing nutrition from 17 vegetables, fruits, and grains. It’s not a vitamin supplement! It’s a capsule, chewable, or beverage designed to get all those little phyto and micro nutrients that just often get missed in our attempt to eat super healthy.
