Boston Local Food Festival Returns to Rose Kennedy Greenway




The Boston Local Food Festival will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., September 16, at the Rose Kennedy Greenway, in Boston. Overlooking historic Boston Harbor, this festival will celebrate the many virtues of locally grown and produced food, and increase accessibility and availability of healthy local food for all.

Massachusetts eaters will see, taste and appreciate the variety of healthy, delicious food choices that local specialty crops and products make available to them in their own backyard. This unique festival will bring Massachusetts farms, food businesses and specialty producers together with individuals and families from diverse backgrounds, organizations, businesses and local food advocates in an informative and fun way.

The Boston Local Food Festival has been endorsed by the city of Boston, Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) and several leading food organizations, businesses and farms. The organizers have committed to being a zero waste event.

Cost: Free for attendees; vendor and advertiser costs vary. Location: Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston. For more information call 617- 395-0250 or visit BostonLocalFoodFestival.com.
