By Mimi Hall, Programming Manager, Trustees
On behalf of the Trustees, I am so delighted to announce that the KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market is officially open! Today we begin our line-up of free and paid, culinary, health and wellness programs for the community, offered during the Market’s hours of operation, 8am-8pm, Wednesday-Sunday.
In the weeks since the Market opened, we’ve really enjoyed chatting with all of you who have come by to shop, explore, play and ask "what’s up with that big space with all the windows that’s starting to really look like a kitchen?"
For those of you who are just learning about the KITCHEN today, let me share a little bit of what’s to come. And for those of you wondering who the Trustees are: we are a founding partner of the Market and the programming partner for the KITCHEN and we are Massachusetts’ largest conservation and preservation organization as well as the nation’s first land trust! We offer more than 1,000 public programs, workshops, and events annually across the state and are looking forward to bringing more people together to celebrate, share, learn and shop from our local bounty at the KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market! You can learn more about our mission as an organization here.
Before diving into a list of our amazing partners, I want to take a moment to note that it is no accident that this space is called the KITCHEN, not a community center. Just as in life, we hope that everyone at the party ends up in the kitchen, a place where all feel welcome and at home.
Our 3,200 square foot, state-of-the-art demo kitchen will feature classes run by local chefs, cookbook authors, health and wellness experts, from our diverse group of partners including REI, Boston Children’s Museum, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Project Bread, the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, America’s Test Kitchen’s New Boston Cooking School, Community Servings, Boston Ferments and so many more. In addition, each week, we will take a closer look at one of the Market’s nearly 40 local vendors, who will offer samplings, conduct demos, and be available for a Q&A, so you’ll be able to really get to know those smiling faces that bring you your produce, fish, meats, cheeses and more each time you visit the Market.
We invite you to check out our more than 200 classes on our online schedule —and that’s just through September.
