Stick Around for the Boston Local Food Festival

Take your locavore-ish tendencies to the next level at the Boston Local Food Festival on Saturday, October 1st. Sponsored by the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Boston, the eco-friendly festivities include all manner of Massachusetts grown goodness – produce and seafood, beer and wine, art and music. There’ll be interactive workshops, demonstrations, competitions and a Family Fun Zone, if you’ve got little ones in tow. Area chefs will also be taking the opportunity to show off their skills with (and affection for) local ingredients – look for a la carte offerings from Rich Garcia of 606 Congress, Andy Husbands of Tremont 647 and Armand Toutaint of Turner Fisheries, for starters. The outdoor celebration is free and open to the public so swing by Fort Point Channel between 11:00am and 5:00pm. Get all the details, including easy T directions so you can be extra green, on the Festival website.
