Our name speaks to our mission: Rockport Exchange is a nonprofit, community organization at the crossroads of ideas and production.

Through our programs we create opportunities for residents and visitors alike to come together and contribute to a forward-looking, vibrant community built on a clear appreciation of Rockport’s past.

Rockport Exchange develops and sustains programming that enhances a sense of place. We strengthen our community by focusing on local food, creative culture, and industry. We believe in building an infrastructure of culture that will have a lasting impact on generations to come.


Rockport Exchange


What We Do

Rockport Exchange originates and sustains community initiatives, programs and events.

Our initiatives focus on small batch food producers, farmers, artists, and education surrounding issues of food and the arts. We also seek to shore up regional culture by working with local institutions, with partners ranging from a historic working farm to our local elementary school. Our past and current initiatives include a local food festival, a year-round farmers market, interactive arts festival, a food forum, a short film festival, and more.
