I was amazed at how many people came out to show their support and not I'm not just talking about the crowds. Also present were multiple vendors that have local household names (Taza Chocolate, Olivia's Organics, Nella Pasta, etc) to some new, to me at least, faces on the local food front (Narragansett Creamery, Tortured Orchard and Burnin' Love Sauces). Fortunately for me, everything was all natural so I could sample away. No processed foods here!

In addition to the local goodies and produce, there were also other local companies including bakeries, specialty shops and Boston's own take on the recent food truck craze, Grilled Cheese Nation, which is a food truck dedicated to bringing fancy schmancy ooey gooey grilled cheeses to hungry Bostonians. Now, that's certainly a cause I can get behind!
