NU Bucket List #95: Boston Public Market

With all of these cold and rainy April days, it’s been hard to enjoy some of the amazing open markets that Boston has to offer in the springtime. But there is one iconic market that you can enjoy all year long no matter the weather – the Boston Public Market! From fresh produce to yummy bakeries, read on to find out all the amazing things the Boston Public Market has to offer

Getting to the market is as easy as hopping on the Orange Line -the market is located directly above the Haymarket stop! Inside the market you can find over 35 Massachusetts based farmers, fishers, and food entrepreneurs! Aside from food products, you can also find things like candles, skin care products, artisan flowers, and yarn created using local resources! You can shop around the market on Monday-Saturday from 8am-8pm and from 10am-6pm on Sundays!

Want to learn more about how to cook with all of the incredible foods you can find at the Boston Public Market? Head over to The KITCHEN, a community gathering place at the Boston Public Market. At The KITCHEN, you can enjoy events, classes, and workshops that celebrate local farmers and artisans. Some activities include demos and tastings, classes taught by professional chefs, and health and wellness programs. Click here for a full list of all upcoming events in The KITCHEN.
