Rose F Kennedy Greenway
For one spectacular day each year, Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts transforms the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and the City of Boston into the nation’s largest local & sustainable food hub! The Boston Local Food Festival is a FREE outdoor festival that showcases farmers, local restaurants, food trucks, specialty food producers, fisher folks, and organizations focusing on healthy food and fitness from New England. The festival also features lively chef & DIY demos, a seafood throw-down competition, diverse music and performances, family fun zone and more.
The 8th Annual Boston Local Food Festival is sponsored by Food Solutions New England, Boston Public Market, The Trustees – Boston Region, & Clarke Kitchens
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”
