The Boston Public Market is an indoor public market featuring produce, delicacy items, and much more. All of the items are sourced from either Massachusetts or the greater New England area. It has a historic origin as seen in the revival of the original Faneuil Hall marketplace. The Boston Public Market is the only market of its kind in the entirety of The United States. It promotes Boston residents to purchase fresh and local food, encourages consumers to understand how food is produced, and promote regional flavours.
Taza Chocolate, Soluna Garden Farm, and Red’s Best Seafood are just a few examples of the great vendors the Boston Public Market has to offer. Vendors sell produce, beverages, poultry, and specialty products such as apple cider donuts and lattes.
The Boston Public Market also hosts exhibitions Wednesday through Friday on sustainable cooking and wellness events that are held in an event space within the market known as The Kitchen. At this venue, people are able to learn new cooking techniques, healthy eating, and overall wellness. Multiple culinary experts have been drawn from around the United States to educate people about the importance of food and share delicious recipes.
Over the next month, The Kitchen is filled with exciting programs; as per below:
Brown Bag Lunch- Fridays 12-1:30pm
