Businesses for a Thriving Community Economy

What Is JP Local First?

We are a network of local and independently owned businesses in Jamaica Plain and surrounding neighborhoods working to grow a strong and sustainable local economy for our vibrant community. We aim to increase inter-business support networks and educate the public about the significant environmental, economic, and cultural benefits of shopping local.
The mission of JP Local First is to support, promote, and celebrate a “Local Economy Community” by educating the public and government about the significant environmental, economic, and cultural benefits of a strong local economy.
JP Local First was formed on Valentine's Day 2013 and, as of September 2016, we have 171 members. Please visit the directory to learn more about these local businesses.
