The Boston Public Market Kitchen

The Kitchen at the Boston Public Market offers year-round programming that encourages a passion for regionally sourced food and appeals to a diverse audience.

The 3,200 square foot space, programmed by The Trustees of Reservations, will offer opportunities such as hands-on cooking demos, lectures, family activities, exercise classes, training and community events within the Boston Public Market.

The Kitchen is a gathering place for all to share and learn about the healthy bounty of Massachusetts. It is the center of community education, programming and interaction, featuring engaging workshops, programs, tours and events that are relevant and accessible to the Boston community.

As the largest private farm-land owner in the Commonwealth, The Trustees is committed to building a more sustainable food system through community supported agriculture (CSA), farm stands, pantry donation, “food by prescription” programs, day camps, cooking classes and community gardens. We look forward to bringing our experience and expertise in community programming to the Market by offering year-round educational opportunities for Market patrons.
