New England’s largest one-day farmers market and premier food event promoting the joys and benefits of eating local food.
Produced by the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts, Boston Local Food Festival is a free outdoor festival that features local food vendors, farmers, fishermen, lively chef & DIY demos, butchering demos, a seafood throw-down competition, diverse music and performances, a family fun zone, and more. Festival goers learn about the benefits of sustainably grown and produced food, shop the market, eat delicious local food, participate in fun, educational activities and exhibits, engage with top local chefs, and enjoy local music. Themed “Healthy Local Food for All”, the festival connects Massachusetts and New England eaters of all backgrounds with the abundance of fresh, nutritious local food choices available close to home.
The festival is a zero-waste event, meaning we divert over 91% of our waste each year, and we offset 100% of our energy use! All perishable items sold are made from locally sourced products. Best of all, we bring this annual event to the community free of charge. So grab your reusable water bottles and bags and enjoy New England’s largest one-day farmers market, while celebrating “healthy local food for all” October 6, 2013!
