Last week I was invited to a special blogger tour of the Boston Public Market just one day before it opened it’s doors to the public! I have been waiting for the opening of this market for quite a few months and excitedly made my way into downtown Boston for my tour!

Located at 100 Hanover Street above Haymarket Station, the Boston Public Market is a 28,000 square foot permanent, year-round, self-sustaining market featuring fresh, locally sourced food from 37 unique vendors.

This is the only locally sourced market of it’s kind in the entire United States and it is considered a civic resource  with a mission to “provide fresh, healthy food to consumers of all income levels, nourish our community, and educate the public about food sources, nutrition, and preparation”.

The KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market is a 3,200 square food space that is going to offer year-round programming and feature hands-on cooking demos, lectures, family activities, exercise classes, training and community events.

Having Crescent Ridge is a personal favorite of mine. I grew up in Sharon, MA and visited Cresent Ridge often. My sister and her friends worked there for years and were considered part of the “Cridge Crew” and my family had their milk delivered to our door weekly in their famous glass bottles. I am so glad I can get a taste of home in downtown Boston!

Another fun feature of the Boston Public Market is the Cookbook Exchange:

The exchange is a place for customers to share their favorite cookbooks and recipes the the community in a one-for-one exchange. Donate a cookbook while picking up a new one to try at home!
