Boston Local Food Festival Welcomes Vendors




 

The Sustainable Business Network (SBN) of Greater Boston has opened vendor registration for its third annual Boston Local Food Festival. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on October 7 in the wharf area parks on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in downtown Boston. Voted “Best of the New” event in 2010 by The Boston Globe Magazine, the Boston Local Food Festival attracts more than 30,000 people each year.

“This event allows local farmers, restaurants, chefs, specialty food producers and related non-profits and service providers to showcase their local culinary creations and programs in a lively, outdoor festival setting,” says SBN Membership Director Katrina Kazda. “This year’s theme is ‘Healthy Local Food for All’ and it connects New England eaters of all backgrounds with the abundance of fresh, nutritious local food all around them.” SBN is now accepting applications from local food vendors to participate in the fall festival.
