The mission of Roslindale Village Main Street (RVMS) is to promote Roslindale Village as an appealing destination and the dynamic center of our community. As an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, we bring together local volunteers, businesses and public agencies to strengthen the Village’s economic vitality, physical appearance and unique local character.
RVMS follows the operating principles of the National Main Street Center. The Main Street Approach advocates a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment, and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets: distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership, and a sense of community. Harnessing the efforts of local volunteers builds long-term success by fostering community involvement and commitment to a shared vision for the neighborhood.
Main Street organizations focus on improving the downtown areas of a community rather than the entire city or town. RVMS serves Roslindale Village and the businesses and public spaces located within these boundaries. Check out the map of our Catchment Area to understand how we and the City of Boston define our district!

Roslindale Village Main Street launched the Rozzie Bucks program in September 2013 as a way to reinforce the habit of setting aside money for local shopping. Thanks to our Co-Sponsor The Cooperative Bank for making the Rozzie Bucks program possible.
Roslindale Village Main Street now offers Rozzie Bucks in $1, $5, $10, and $20 denominations. Purchase Rozzie Bucks at the RVMS office at 4236A Washington Street during regular business hours (9:00 am to 5:00 pm) or at the RVMS Farmers Market in Adams Park each Saturday from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm. Think of it like buying a gift certificate to a mall — except these Rozzie Bucks are the gift of shopping locally in our Village.
