A LOCAL’S GUIDE TO
Welcome to the 3rd annual Local’s Guide to Somerville; Your resource for finding all the best
in locally owned and independent businesses in the ‘ville!
In these pages, you’ll find only truly local and independent businesses, and know that these
organizations have joined Somerville Local First in building a sustainable community and an
economy that is LOCAL, GREEN and FAIR. We hope you’ll keep them in mind for all your
We also encourage you to pay special attention to the advertisers in our Guide, without whom
we would not be able to publish and distribute 10,000 copies to the community.
But why, you might ask, is it important to support local businesses? Well, the answer is clearer
now than ever before. Local Independents do much for our community including:
• Keep more money in our community: Local businesses also buy local themselves, from food
and supplies to local service providers. In short, local businesses help Somerville prosper.
• Create a unique sense of place: Somerville is a community like no other, and by being
uniquely Somerville, a local business adds character which helps make Somerville interesting
and one of a kind.
• Support community groups and nonprofits: Ask any nonprofit organization in Somerville,
and they will tell you that local businesses are far more likely to offer donations, raffle items
and support in pursuit of their mission. By buying from them, you help provide resources
which get directed back to the community.
• And many, many more! Check our website for a full list of reasons to buy local, and how
doing so puts the power back in the hands of our community.
As we progress into our 5th year in 2013, we want to thank all of our supporters, members,
champions and advocates for their support to help us get here. Somerville Local First would
not be here without you, and we can’t wait to see what the next 5 years will bring.
With lots of local love,

Somerville’s roots go deep. It played a role in the Revolutionary War and there are markers,
monuments and old buildings all over town that show off our proud history. But Somerville
isn’t stuck in the past. In fact, it seems to me that there’s a mini-revolution happening here
right now. The city is full of people young and old who’ve decided to make it their home, to
settle, to become part of the fabric of this dynamic place.
Somerville has undergone dozens of transformations since its founding, but it has probably
never been as vibrant a city as it is today. With an active local food movement fueling
multiple farmer’s markets to new businesses cropping up in previously overlooked squares,
Somerville is alive with innovation, creativity and passionate people working to build a
From craft beer and world-class dining to the neighborhood cafe that makes a great
cup of coffee, there are more reasons than ever to support businesses making their home
To me, Somerville has always felt like a small town within a big city. You get to know your
neighbors, you wave to the same people at the bus stop each morning and you see the mayor
coaching soccer at the local park. There are people investing in this once-written-off town that
are making it a pretty happening place. This is what makes Somerville such a fulfilling place to
live, work and play.
I landed in Somerville nearly five years ago and while I’ve loved it the whole time, it seems
that there’s never been a better time to be here than right now.
