Project Description

Boston Local Food Festival

Boston Local Food Festival is New England’s largest one-day farmers market and premier food event promoting the joys and benefits of eating local food.

Produced by Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts, Boston Local Food Festival is a free outdoor festival that showcases local farmers, restaurants, food trucks, specialty food producers, fisher folks, and organizations focusing on healthy local food and fitness from New England. The festival also features lively chef & DIY demos, diverse music and performances, a family fun zone and more. 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.

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. 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. To learn more about the festival, donate, or to participate, visit us at
