New Boston Public Market to Open this Summer

The Boston Public Market (BPM), a permanent, year-round, self-sustaining market featuring fresh locally sourced food, will be opening sometime this summer. Located at 136 Blackstone Street, with direct access to the MBTA’s Haymarket Station, the BPM will bring together local farmers, fishermen and specialty food producers with the residents of Boston and Massachusetts to create a new civic institution—a vibrant marketplace that will let people taste, buy and understand their food. Market-goers will learn how their food is made and sourced, its nutritional value, its impact on the environment, as well as how to prepare it to make delicious meals.

More than 35 vendors have been announced to date. Classes, workshops and events will be held in the 3,200 square-foot, state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen including hands-on cooking demos, lectures, family activities, exercise classes and community events within the Boston Public Market.
