Attn Boston Foodies!

Just a quick post to let you know about two amazing events happening in Boston in October. The Boston Local Food Festival is this coming Saturday. I volunteered at the festival last year and will be helping out again this year. Here are some details straight from the BLFF website (just click the links for more info). I hope to see you there!

    This Festival brings together an amazing array of vegetarian natural food providers, top national speakers and chefs, and educational exhibitors in a fun and welcoming environment. It is a chance to talk directly to food producers, learn the newest items in the marketplace, taste free food samples, shop at show special discounts, or simply learn what vegetarian foods are available and where you can find them!

    I've gone to this festival for the past two years and highly recommend checking it out! It can get crowded, so get there early and look at the speaker schedule

    1. The local food festival was awesome this year. Definitely a little less crazy than last year... thus less stressful. The vegetarian one I went to 2 years ago... I think (maybe last year) and it was insanely packed. I'd second the recommendation to go early or be prepared to be elbowed every 2 minutes ;) Also, come hungry and bring some $$. It's a great place to get an interesting lunch.
