Natural Awakenings Boston

Boston Local Food Festival Returns to the Greenway

The Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts will host the 7th annual Boston Local Food Festival from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., September 18, on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway. The free, outdoor festival is themed Healthy, Local Food for All, and features more than 125 farmers, local restaurants, food trucks, specialty food producers, fisher folks and organizations that focus on healthy food and fitness in New England.

“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 engage with local chefs,” says Amy Klein, director of marketing. “It connects Massachusetts and New England eaters with the abundance of fresh, nutritious local foods that are available close to home.”

The festival also features a Seafood Throwdown and a family fun zone with activities organized by the Trustees and the New England Aquarium.

Cost: Free. Location: Rose F. Kennedy Greenway, 191 Atlantic Ave., Boston. To learn more, call 617-395-0250 or visit
