2011 Boston Local Food Festival to Be Held October 1

A food event returns to the Fort Point neighborhood of Boston early next month, and once again it will be focusing on foods that are sourced from the local region.

An email sent by The Sustainable Business Network of Greater Boston indicates that the Boston Local Food Festival will be held from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday, October 1 near the Congress Street Bridge by the Children's Museum. Highlights of the event include freshly harvested produce and seafood, inexpensive dishes created using local ingredients, craft beer from local breweries, wine tastings, exhibits and demonstrations about cooking, gardening, and more, and music and art.

Guests are encouraged to bring produce from their gardens to drop off so it can be collected and distributed through South Boston Grows and The Food Project to families in need.

Admission to the Boston Local Food Festival is free.
