Boston Local Food Festival is a free, annual event that brings together residents from all neighborhoods in Boston and beyond for one spectacular day of celebration and learning about the wonderful abundance of local food produced in Massachusetts and New England.
It's also the one event each year where all players of the local food movement-- farmers, specialty producers, chefs, retailers, non-profits and exhibitors from across New England-- come together to celebrate the importance of local and sustainable food to our health, the environment & our economy.
Considered New England’s largest one-day farmers market, the Boston Local Food Festival is the premier event of The Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts- a local, grassroots non-profit organization. To continue our mission and bring the Boston Local Food Festival to our community each year, we rely on the support of the local community and individuals like you.
The bottom line: Help us celebrate Boston and celebrate healthy local food for all!
If you believe in the values of local, green and fair, and you're passionate about local & sustainable food, help us fund another year of the nation's largest authentically local & sustainable food festival!
Our unique outdoor festival features local food vendors, lively chef & DIY demos, butchering demos, seafood throw-down competition, diverse music and performances, family fun zone and so much more. 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!
Each and every festival vendor and sponsor is locally owned & independent. All perishable items sold are made from locally sourced products. Best of all, we bring this annual event to the community free of charge.
Together, let's increase the accessibility and availability of healthy, local food for all!
