Consumers can indulge in two of their favorite hobbies at the Geauga Consumer Connection show: eating and shopping – and it is all for FREE.

One of more popular features of this highly attended show is the free food samples offered by area restaurants and food stores.

Some of the businesses sampling food include Arabica Café, Kathryn’s Cakes, Rise & Dine Café, Zestive Parties, Chow Down Catering, Bada Bing Pizza, The Hungry Bee and more. This year, consumers will be asked to vote for their favorite bite in the first Geauga Consumer Connection Taste Off.

In addition to tasting some of the best food Geauga County has to offer, consumers can visit with scores of local businesses and shop their products and services. Meet area businesses offering travel services, healthcare, financial services, pet services, home maintenance and improvement services and more. The Geauga Consumer Connection show is a great opportunity to “try before you buy.”
