For the last few days here in New York City, I was attending the Fancy Food Show, one of my absolute favorite trade shows of the year.

What makes this show different from many of the others that I attend is the number of international exhibitors. This gives me the rare opportunity to discover organic products from abroad that I otherwise would not get to see. And two of my picks below are produced from countries outside of the U.S.

Here are my Top 5 Organic Food Products from Fancy Food Show 2017.

HAVEN’S KITCHEN KALE WALNUT PESTO

Nearly every time I go to the refrigerated section of the supermarket, I go looking for an organic pesto sauce, knowing full well that I probably won’t find one. For some inexplicable reason, they barely exist.

So, when I saw that Haven’s Kitchen had introduced a kale walnut pesto – and an amazing one at that – I was beyond thrilled. Not only is it flavored perfectly and has great texture, but this product fills a massive void in the market.

Alison Cayne, owner of New York City’s Haven’s Kitchen and author of The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School, has also rolled out a few other fantastic sauces, including an herby chimichurri and a red pepper romesco. Read more »

Last week in New York City, I attended the Fancy Food Show 2016, one of the best food shows of the year.

While it is not an organic food show per se, there is an increasing amount of organic vendors and I would estimate that about 15-20% of the booths there do offer some type of organic product.  Read more »

As I wrote about in a recent blog post, Ayala’s Herbal Water was one of my favorite products that I saw at the 2010 Fancy Food Show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.

In this video, I interview the founder of the company, Dr. Ayala, and she talks about how she came up with the product and why.

Ayala’s Herbal Water is leading a trend that I believe will only continue to grow — organic beverages made with unique, not-too-often used herbs and spices. I am currently seeing it in NYC (a video-blog post on this is forthcoming) and we see it here with Ayala’s Herbal Water.

Keep an eye on this company.
