Boston Local Food Festival 2014
Looking for a way to indulge in delicious food as well as support your local economy? Come to the Boston Local Food Festival on September 14th where there will be freshly harvested produce from local farmers, gourmet specialty products, chef demos, as well as a variety of different local food and non-profit venders!
When: September 14, 2014
Time: 11 AM to 5 PM
Where: Rose F. Kennedy Greenway (near Aquarium T stop)
What: 5th Annual Boston Local Food Festival, presented by the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts
Who: Our motto? Healthy, local food for ALL!
The Boston Local Food Festival is an event for all ages aimed to allow locals to taste and appreciate the variety of locally produced and harvested products grown right here in the Boston area! There will be live music performed by local musicians and fun activities for children. There will also be competitions (like the annual Seafood Throwdown, sponsored by NAMA) and demonstrations put on by local food experts.
The festival will provide access to healthy food for $6 or less, created with local ingredients. The goal of this event is to connect local farmers and producers to their consumers, strengthening the community and educating the locals in a delicious and informative way.
The festival has been endorsed by the City of Boston, Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR), and several leading food organizations, businesses, and farms. We also have a goal of making this a Zero Waste event. In 2012, 91% of waste was diverted from landfills!
