CALGARY — The 91st Canadian Produce Marketing Association show April 10-12 was the last roundup here — next year a rotation begins between Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal as host cities. Our Maggie Giuffrida and Mary Blackmon (FarmStar Living) check in with one final report from the show floor.
Stay tuned for more in our video series from Calgary, including a look at the social side of CPMA and a hockey showdown between a team from the host city PMA and a squad made up of CPMA members from across the rest of Canada.
CALGARY — From tropical tastes to local favorites to an apple that won't turn brown, our Maggie Giuffrida and Mary Blackmon found it all on the show floor at the Canadian Produce Marketing Association expo 2016 held here April 12-14. Their favorite? A chocolate chip cookie made with cauliflower that was so good it was worth fighting over.
Stay tuned as our CPMA video series continues this week with more from the floor, a look at Calgary's social side and an epic hockey matchup between CPMA members.
CALGARY — This is the last time the Canadian Produce Marketing Association expo will be held here (a rotation of Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal starts next year) and the city seemed determined to say goodbye in style.

Our Maggie Giuffrida and Mary Blackmon (FarmStar Living) teamed up to cover the grand opening.

Our wall-to-wall coverage will continue throughout the week with more from the show floor, a look at the social side of Calgary, and a CPMA members hockey game so good it may even make up for the fact that there are no Canadian teams in the Stanley Cup playoffs this year for the first time since 1969.
SAN ANTONIO, TX — Country music, Jerry Jeff Walker and Pitbull on the golf course? Must be San Antonio. Dozens of duffers brought out their A game (or as close as they had) for the Viva Fresh golf tournament at the TPC course at the JW Marriot Hill Country Resort & Spa here.
Our Maggie Giuffrida was along for the ride and learned a few tricks as the day progressed in the finale of our Viva Fresh video series.
