“It’s been pretty positive. We weren’t sure about this location (in the basement), but we’ve had a fair amount of traffic.”

Audrey McCabe
A Pawfect World
Torrance, Calif.

“We look forward to the show every single year because we get such big-time knowledge. I liked the coconut earrings at Coco Loco, Nordic Naturals’ omega-3 oil and the new energy waters like elete, which has added electrolytes.”

Ruth Tadman
Hippocrates Health Institute
Palm Beach, Fla.

“I think it’s too much and too big and too overwhelming, and there are too many foods that aren’t that good. There aren’t enough pure or organic products.”

Adam Maine
Just Bare Chicken/Gold’ N Plump
St. Cloud, Minn.

“This is our first time attending and we’re very happy that we did. We’re definitely meeting the people we want. A lot of consumers have been coming up to us and asking where they can buy our chicken.”

Jon Nash
Everything Raw
Pahao, Hi.

“Growth and awareness.”

Barry Rustein
Newport Beach, Calif.

“If I had to do it over again I would do that online planner before I came. There are so many vendors here, I’m getting lost. But the quality and quantity is just fantastic.”

Susan Yao
Senior cook

“It’s just too much! Otherwise, I had a nice day.”
