Our GOAL IS TO Connect Health Conscious Consumers with Brands They Will Love

NOSH Market is the only event dedicated to helping health-conscious food brands deliver their values and flavors directly to a sophisticated consumer audience of thousands.


What is NOSH Market?

With an explosion of choices in the marketplace, it is increasingly difficult to gain the attention of health-conscious consumers. NOSH Market is the event to help “better for you” food brands build awareness, create consumer loyalty and develop new distribution channels.

The first event of its kind, NOSH Market allows you to share your brand’s values directly with an engaged audience of thousands. Share your story and samples, and build loyal customers for life. 

Education is a cornerstone of our event and includes programming introducing food lifestyles, fitness activities and alternative health therapies.

The inaugural event will take place May 2018 at Chicago’s Navy Pier.

We Lead with Values

NOSH Market is committed to the promise of our name, No Ordinary Snacks Here, by delivering an influential event that serves our audience’s need for both convenience and wellness.

This event is a carefully curated collection of the country’s best food and snack brands. These are the foods you want to eat. Brands participating in NOSH must represent a commitment to health consciousness by upholding one of more of our core values including higher quality natural ingredients, transparency, sustainability, organic, cruelty-free, allergy-friendly and lifestyle-compliant.
