WOMEN'S FOOD FEST...Just the Beginning
Eat In, Dine In, Purchase Gift Baskets or Gift Cards to support women owned food businesses
We are a collection of women-owned food businesses in Washington, DC that hosted Women's Food Fest in September 2020 and a Holiday Market in December 2020, to help boost small business' during COVID-19. Following up on this successful debut we present, Women Entrepreneurs Holiday Market.
Now we're featuring Inauguration Gift Basket 2021, that can be found here.
This marketplace features specially curated food gifts - Chef dinners, gift baskets and monthly specials from many of DC’s outstanding women-owned businesses. We are women entrepreneurs who took the leap to open their own businesses and have become the heart of their communities. From full service and fast casual restaurants, cooking schools, bars and lounges, ice cream and gelato stores, delis and bakeshops we work together to highlight our businesses.
We now need your support by your patronage as we navigate the new "normal" and try to keep our businesses open during this pandemic. Buy a gift basket, dine in or carry out - there is something for everyone to enjoy during the holidays. Participating shops and restaurants can be found here.
This collaboration is fostered by Let’s Talk, a program to connect women restaurateurs, spearheaded by Rohini Dey, Ph.D. owner of Vermilion restaurant, who runs Let's Talk across ten cities within the James Beard Foundation Women’s Leadership Programs. Rohini is a Trustee of the JBF and Chairs their Women's Leadership Program.
We are supported by Nycci Nellis' The List Are You On It and the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington.
