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.

Mission

Our mission is to provide fresh, healthy food to consumers of all income levels, nourish our community, and educate the public about food sources, nutrition, and preparation.

History

In 2001, the Boston Public Market Association was formed by a dedicated coalition of food lovers, food producers, and state and city officials. After years of work advocating for the development of a public market in Boston, they gained the support of elected officials and helped identify a permanent site for the market. In 2011, state and city officials settled on a location for the market on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, directly above the Haymarket MBTA station.

About_8The Market spans the ground floor of 100 Hanover Street, which also contains the Boston RMV branch, entrances to the Haymarket MBTA station, vent stacks for the Interstate-93 tunnel, and a parking garage. The building and the Market’s location had been vacant for over 12 years. This location is part of Boston’s emerging Market District, along with the Haymarket open-air fruit and vegetable market and the historic Blackstone Block. After the Boston Public Market Association raised $13 million for the design, permitting, and construction of the Market, oversaw an on-time construction process, and brought together many of the region’s top food producers, the Market opened on July 30, 2015.
