Embracing the theme “Play with Your Food,” 200 Baldor food vendors across meat, seafood, grocery, dairy, and produce will provide a veritable culinary wonderland for the senses.

“Baldor BITE is our chance to bring all partners of our business to one place at the same time in the most fun way possible,” explains Benjamin Walker, chief revenue officer, Baldor Specialty Foods. “With the vibe of a day party, including copious amounts of food and drink, we connect our end users with incredible farmers and producers who get to introduce them to new products and brainstorm solutions for tomorrow’s opportunities.”

“We recognize that being a chef is exhausting work,” says Margaret Magnarelli, VP of marketing & communications. “So, since creating BITE in 2013, Baldor has always endeavored to make the event as fun as possible.

This year, our theme of ‘Play with Your Food’ takes that intent a step further, to celebrate the fact that good food can be full of joy. We’ve woven the playfulness thread throughout the event with activations ranging from free tattoos to fun games to live tuna cutting to bigger-than-big photo moments.”

BITE attendees are invited to experience whimsical live activations such as a ball-pit shaped like a caviar container and a cheese grater “plinko” game. Guests can explore the Baldor “bodega” where they will discover select retail offerings.

They can purchase exclusive merch from a collaboration with an influential chef, or wander through the charming “farmers market” to support regional farmers. Visit the food tattoo artist for some fresh ink, grab a cocktail at one of many open bars, or recharge at the Partners coffee bar. Witness the artistry of live tuna cutting or venture to the outside food court boasting an array of gourmet food trucks.
