The Boston Public Market is an indoor, year round marketplace for locally sourced groceries and specialty agricultural products, where residents and visitors can find fresh, seasonal food from Massachusetts and New England. The Market houses 39 local farmers, fishers, and food entrepreneurs selling items such as farm fresh produce; meat and poultry; eggs; milk and cheese; fish and shellfish; bread and baked goods; beverages; flowers; and an assortment of specialty and prepared foods. Everything sold at the Market is produced or originates in New England making this a true home grown feel!
Located at 100 Hanover Street in Boston, BPM spans the length of the entire ground floor which also contains the Boston RMV branch, entrances to the Haymarket MBTA station, vent stacks for the Interstate-93 tunnel, and a parking garage. The building and the Market’s location had been vacant for over 12 years before the idea of the market was born. This location is part of Boston’s emerging Market District, along with the Haymarket open-air fruit and vegetable market and the historic Blackstone Block. After the Boston Public Market Association raised $13 million for the design, permitting, and construction of the Market, oversaw an on-time construction process, and brought together many of the region’s top food producers, the Market opened on July 30, 2015. They'll be celebrating their year anniversary at the end of this month!
Back in the day, my great uncle use to sell produce at Haymarket's open-air fruit and vegetable market so I'm very fond of BPM's mission and what they're trying to accomplish in the city that I love. So if you're in the area Monday or Tuesday, stop by and have a drink or two while you shop for fresh ingredients for dinner or lunches for work the week. You can't go wrong with the top notch vendors that call BPM home. Devour the details of all this fresh produce and celebrate the extended hours of Boston Public Market at their pop-up beer garden next week! See you there!
