Introducing the long awaited Boston Public Market, the new home of more than 40 different vendors where they can sell local fruits, produce, seafood, meats, breads and pastries year round. From farmers and fishermen to specialty food purveyors from Massachusetts and New England, the market hopes to be popular with locals and tourists alike. Located inside the marketplace is a kitchen classroom for cooking demonstrations. Open Wednesday through Sundays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., here you can find vendors like Nella Pasta, Chestnut Farm, Vermont Farmstand, Peterman’s Boards and Bowls and George Howell Coffee. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Mayor Marty Walsh both attended the opening.
