Cambridge Local First - Independent Businesses in the City of Cambridge

Cambridge Local First is an organization of 250+ locally-owned independent businesses in the city of Cambridge which have banded together to promote and support Cambridge.

To browse through the Cambridge Local First market directory is to be reminded of the many wonderful independent businesses to be found in Cambridge.

For example, the Seven Stars Bookstore on Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square is the kind of place that makes Cambridge special. Usually you will find Phillip and/or Stuart at the helm. I always gravitate to the Buddhism section. A mix of new and used titles. Very strong collection. Always something on the shelf you didn't find last time. And good conversation with one of the proprietors or other store visitors comes naturally. There is peace and quiet on tap, too, for the browser who prefers to sit down and engage with a book. The high ceilings and large windows at the front and back of the store make it a nice place to be.

If you are considering buying or selling in Cambridge, I am here to help. I can be reached at or 617-733-8937.  I am a Harvard graduate, a Cambridge resident and a top broker in the city since 1999.
