“The Fair at the PNE was a unique opportunity to spread The Onion Factory’s gourmet onions this past year to many new guests who hadn’t heard of us
before,” said food truck entrepreneur Derek Collins. “Being a vendor at the PNE was a chance to demonstrate and expand our brand, showing that we sell a
quality, delicious product.”
Submissions will be evaluated on a number of criteria:
• Uniqueness of food
