Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts (SBN) is excited to announce its second Buy Local Food Trade Show and Seminar at the Seaport World Trade Center Boston. This event is designed to facilitate connections and stimulate trade between local buyers and sellers of specialty crop food products and includes expert panels on overcoming barriers to selling and buying local products and open floor trading. This event is organized by SBN in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MassGrown)  Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA) and Health Care Without Harm (HCWH). SBN Buy Local Trade Show space is sponsored by Seaport World Trade Center and the Trade Show is supported in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources. SBN’s first Buy Local Trade Show, held in 2010, was well attended and resulted in Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, among others, developing important new relationships with local food producers and farmers. A recap of the event is highlighted here.
