Boston Local Food Festival this Saturday!

This Saturday marks the first Boston Local Food Festival presented by the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Boston.
The Festival will feature: local produce and fish, loads of delicious samples, cooking and butchering demonstrations from local chefs, local wines and beers, workshops, arts and crafts, live music and tons more!
26 local restaurants will be serving food, 7 farms/apiaries will be on hand with produce, 11 brewers will be on hand sampling wine, mead, and beer, as will over 40 speciality food producers selling a variety of locally made edibles.
For a complete list of the vendors check out this list!
Best of all the event is free for one and all!!!

The organizers are asking attendees to bring their own water bottle, reusable shopping bags, and utensils so as to reduce the waste produced by the festival.
The festival will be held at Boston's Fort Point Channel on the Congress Street Bridge and along Boston's Waterfront by the Boston Children's Museum.
The festival runs from 11am - 5pm

I hope some of my local readers will be in attendance. I'll definitely be there enjoying local food and beverages as well as stocking up my cupboards with some great locally produced edibles!

Look here for a review and some pictures(hopefully) after the festival!
