WHO: The Boston Local Food Festival & Sustainable Business Network of Greater Boston
WHAT: "Spotlighting specialty products carefully made by Massachusetts and New England artisan food crafters, many that include locally-grown foods. Be ready to sample and then buy jams, pickles, baked goods, sauces, pasta and more.”
WHEN: Saturday, October 2nd, 2010 from 11am - 5pm
WHERE: Boston waterfront at Fort Point Channel (use public transportation!)
WHY: "The most important objective of the Boston Local Food Festival is to increase accessibility and availability of healthy local food for all. Massachusetts eaters of all ages, races, and socioeconomic levels 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 back yard. This unique festival will bring Massachusetts farms together with individuals and families from diverse backgrounds, organizations, businesses, and local food advocates in an informative and fun way."
