Boston Local Food Festival, one of Boston's "Best of the New" events in 2010 according to Boston Globe Magazine, is produced by Sustainable Business Network of Greater Boston (SBN) and built upon the principals of local, green and fair. During this free, zero waste festival, farmers, fisher folk, producers and chefs showcase local food in an outdoor, waterfront arena. Spectators of all backgrounds learn about the benefits of sustainably produced food from New England, purchase delicious local food, participate in health and educational activities, engage with top local chefs, enjoy local music and art, and taste local craft beer and mead.
