UPDATE: The JP Local First Fair has been postponed to June 27 due to inclement weather. There are more than 165 independent businesses in Jamaica Plain and dozens of them will be participating in the 3rd Annual JP Local First Fair. During the free fair you'll have the chance to learn more about locally-owned businesses and nonprofits that will have tables set up with info, products and services. In the past, you've been able to sample food and products, get free massages, learn about volunteering and more. "One of the many remarkable things about our community is its great diversity of local and independent businesses and non profits," said David Warner, Chair of the Steering Committee for JP Local First, and owner of City Feed and Supply, adding that the fair is a great opportunity to make a new connection with a business you may not have known about already.
What do more than 50 local businesses, poutine, Mexican street corn, a social media contest and a bouncy house have in common? They're all going to be at the 2nd Annual JP Local First Fair this Thursday at the Loring-Greenough House. The JP Local First Fair is a great way to support many of our JP businesses, or get to know new ones. There will be a wide array of businesses with focuses on: bicycling, canines, real estate, financial planning, theater, helping the elderly, acupuncture, music, dance, legal services and more. This year's JP Local First Fair will feature live music from Back Bay Drumming and Evan of Music at the Blissful.
