Super Local Snacks is the latest residency of the Inman Incubator, a 190-square food retail storefront featuring rotating artists and makers powered by the East Cambridge Business Association and Inman Square sewing studio Gather Here, and supported by Commonwealth Alternative Care and the City of Cambridge’s Small Business Challenge grant.
