Thank you for a great decade!

After a decade of serving the small businesses and artists in our beloved city, Somerville Local First is no longer operating as of May 1, 2019.

SLF was founded in 2008 on the mission of nurturing an environment where an independent, local economy could thrive. Today, shopping local and supporting entrepreneurs and artists is a way of life in Somerville. It is woven into the fabric of the city and its residents. We are proud of the role that SLF has played in catalyzing this shift. Yet, what this also means is that SLF has, in reality, accomplished its mission.

There are now substantial resources available to support budding small business owners that simply didn’t exist 10 years ago. We invite you to check out these sites:

Thank you so much for your support.

Locally Yours,
Somerville Local First
