The 2016 Boston Local Food Festival is coming up soon! The festival is scheduled for September 18th from 11 am to 5 pm on the Greenway.
New to the festival this year is the Shuckin' Truck, bringing fresh seafood and a raw bar to the event. The Shuckin' Truck is known for being a family business, supplying their fish from the Roebuck family fishing vessels and their oysters from another family business, Salt Pond Oysters. The oysters are sustainably grown and harvested year round in Point Judith, Rhode Island.
While the oysters are available year round, the rest of the menu changes based on what fish are seasonably available. Throughout the year, they offer dishes such as a sea scallop roll, mango lobster tacos, and the family's traditional lobster rolls.
I'm pretty excited to try out the seafood at the Shuckin' Truck while I'm at the Festival this year!
