About this event

*NOTE: This event is a private trade show for food industry professionals. At 4pm we are opening the doors to the public for a fun evening of food and drink -- tickets to the public event can be found here!

Looking to discover the next culinary craze, hidden gem, or emerging food trend? The CommonWealth Kitchen Food Show has you covered!

Featuring nearly 100 of Greater Boston’s most innovative, exciting, and diverse food entrepreneurs, our food show fuses local talent and global influences with raw passion, ensuring you’ll find just the right thing to entice and delight customers, clients, and patrons.

Whether you’re searching for delectable baked goods, tangy sauces, and condiments to elevate and differentiate your dishes, unique food trucks and caterers for your next event or simply looking to be inspired and excited by awesome entrepreneurs and their delicious food products, our food show won’t disappoint.

On top of all that deliciousness, you’ll be supporting CommonWealth Kitchen’s mission to create a more equitable, sustainable, and inclusive food economy.

75% of the companies participating are BIPOC-owned and 80% are women-owned. These are companies and products you will feel inspired to support, and after all of the challenges of the past two years, don't we all need some inspiration (paired with delicious local fare)?!

About CommonWealth Kitchen

At CommonWealth Kitchen, we believe in the power of inclusive entrepreneurship to change the world.

As Greater Boston’s only nonprofit food business incubator we provide a launching pad for diverse entrepreneurs to start and build successful food companies.

The business leaders that make up our network—predominantly BIPOC and women-owned enterprises—bring the passion, talent, and love for their craft. We provide some of the supports they have not traditionally had access to, like our shared kitchen and manufacturing space, specialized equipment, best practices, and valuable connections. We are coaches, mentors, and advocates for those who have traditionally been excluded from our food economy.

Since 2009, we’ve helped to launch more than 150 diverse food businesses, creating over 500 new permanent jobs, and generating over $65 million annually in combined gross revenue.

In addition to our commercial kitchen rental and business assistance, we also offer small-batch manufacturing, which provides outsourced production to emerging member companies to help them scale, as well as farms, restaurants, and other food businesses.

CommonWealth Kitchen has received numerous awards and accolades for its work, including being named Boston Magazine’s 2021 Best Community Catalyst.
