The DeSoto Chamber of Commerce has begun preliminary planning for Sweet and Savory: A Celebration of Dining South of the Trinity in an effort to promote local businesses and encourage DeSoto and surrounding communities to shop local. Sweet and Savory will be held  at the DeSoto Civic Center and will provide a platform for restaurants, food trucks and caterers to provide samples of signature dishes. The event will also feature family friendly entertainment and ample opportunities to learn more about businesses located south of the Trinity. Sweet and Savory will serve as the second event in a series of shop local efforts hosted by the DeSoto Chamber in an attempt to fuel the economy and showcase local businesses.
