Worcester Local First is a non-profit network of local, independent Worcester businesses.  Our mission is to connect our members with consumers in order to strengthen our local economy and enhance the vibrancy of our city. We engage, promote, and empower all locally owned businesses.

We make these connections and bring our buy local message to the community through an ongoing social media and public relations campaign highlighting our members and the unique value they bring to Worcester.  We also publish and distribute the only directory of local, independent Worcester businesses.  Plus, our online directory drives business to our members.

We also work to connect our members with each other and provide them with tools and information they need to increase their business.  Our regular Networking Events foster member to member networking and sharing of ideas, and our informative speakers keep our members informed about what is happening in the city and the local movement.

Created by a group of local business owners in 2007, Worcester Local First is part of a growing number of Local Firsts throughout the country.
