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, local food from Massachusetts and New England. The Market houses 40 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.

Development of the Boston Public Market was a partnership between the not-for-profit Boston Public Market Association, individual and corporate donors, foundations, the City of Boston, and the project’s seed funder, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Boston Public Market Association (a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization) developed and operates the Boston Public Market with a public impact mission to support the farmers, fishers, and entrepreneurs who grow, catch and produce local food, and to nourish our community with food and experiences.

  • Amazing assortment of vendors. I had Reds seafood. Lobster bisque soup and crab cakes were delicious. Fun to walk around and ice cream at Crescent Ridge for dessert. Reminds me of Chelsea Market but brighter and less crowded.
  • Not sure what to write a review about exactly. Each individual company inside is great. A little overlap in some areas (similar types of vendors) but really good nonetheless. Better signage would be nicer. Knowing where the bathrooms are, which vendors are where, street exits, etc. It's pretty busy but always a nice stop when I'm downtown.
