Boston Public Market Announces Second Round of Vendors
for Permanent, Year-Round Local Food Market
35+ Small Businesses to Sell Locally-Produced Items Starting in July
The Boston Public Market announced twelve additional small businesses that will sell locally-produced goods in the new permanent, year-round market on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway directly above the Haymarket MBTA station. Starting in July, the 28,000-square-foot Market will house over 35 farmers, fishermen, and food producers from Massachusetts and throughout New England, selling items such as farm fresh produce; meat and poultry; milk and cheese; fish and shellfish; bread and baked goods; flowers; and an assortment of specialty and prepared foods.
“We are thrilled to be included in this wonderful group of farmers, fishermen and food artisans at the Boston Public Market,” said Kim Denney and Rich Jakshtis, owners of Chestnut Farms in Hardwick, MA. “We look forward to connecting the Boston community with agriculture and offering our tasty, locally raised, healthy meat – and we also look forward to shopping there ourselves!”
The Market will span the ground floor of 100 Hanover Street (formerly known as 136 Blackstone Street), 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 Market is located in downtown Boston’s emerging Market District, next to the Haymarket pushcart vendors and the historic Blackstone Block.
“At the Boston Public Market, the people of Boston can meet the faces behind their food and discover the incredible bounty of our region,” said Elizabeth Morningstar, CEO of the Boston Public Market. “This is a place where all residents of Boston can come together around food and flavor, and discover a real connection to each other and the food they eat.”
The Boston Public Market will feature a diverse offering of programs designed to highlight regional culinary traditions and local food production, as well as inspire healthy eating and creative cooking among families and individuals. The Trustees of Reservations is the lead programming partner and will manage and staff a teaching kitchen in the heart of the market, working with other non-profit organizations and for-profit partners to offer exciting classes, demonstrations, and other programs.

“Being part of the Boston Public Market is a great opportunity to introduce a broader audience to the fresh herbs we grow on our farm and the tea and spice blends we produce,” said Amy Hirschfeld and Tatiana Brainerd, owners of Soluna Garden Farm in Winchester, MA. “We can’t wait to meet our new Boston Public Market customers and find out what they’re cooking with all of the amazing locally grown and locally produced foods from the market.”
“We are thrilled to be able to support the hard work of local fishermen by bringing their catch to the Boston Public Market,” said Jason Tucker, chef at Red’s Best in Boston.
