UPDATE: JP Local First Fair Postponed to June 27

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.
