Our Definition of Local Food Offered at Festival

We define local as Massachusetts grown and produced as the first preference, and then expanding beyond the state to Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont in New England.

Basic Food Vendor Requirements

We are enthusiastically seeking vendor applications from those who comply with the following guidelines:

Local Food

Food vendors are encouraged to offer dishes and portions that include locally grown or sourced perishable foods.  These could include: 1) fruits, vegetables, herbs, honey and maple syrup (categorized as specialty crops in Massachusetts), 2) dairy, and 3) meat. Our team is available to help you find local food suppliers, if you need assistance.

Affordable Servings

Our goal is to offer affordable local food, and therefore we ask that food vendors offer a maximum price of $6 per serving or portion.

Zero Waste

Since Boston Local Food Festival is a Zero Waste event, all vendors should use recyclable and compostable utensils, serving containers, and napkins. No bottled water will be served at the event. For zero waste resources, contact charlotte@sbnmass.org.
