The Boston Public Market has opened at Haymarket Station in downtown Boston. It is open 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday.
The market is described as a year-round, self-sustaining market featuring fresh, locally sourced food brought directly from farmers, fishermen and food producers from Massachusetts and throughout New England. The market houses more than 35 vendors selling locally produced items such as farm-fresh produce, meat and poultry, eggs, milk and cheese, fish and shellfish, bread and baked goods, flowers, as well as an assortment of specialty and prepared foods.
Everything sold at the market is produced or originates in New England. The market also is considered a resource, educating the public about food sources, nutrition and preparation.
The Boston Public Market is a partnership between the Boston Public Market Association, individual and corporate donors, foundations, the city of Boston, as well as the project’s seed funder, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Boston Public Market Association is a nonprofit organization.
