After a successful outdoor beer garden pop-up to celebrate the Boston Public Market’s seven-day-a-week opening last month, the city’s local food marketplace today announced that it will begin hosting “Local Libations,” a weekly outdoor beer or wine garden on the plaza outside the Market, Thursday evenings from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m, throughout the fall season. The first “Local Libations” will take place on Thursday, August 18 and feature $5/glass red, white, and rosé wines from Massachusetts Wine Shop, a Market vendor.
The weekly outdoor events will offer rotating beverage options each week, such as local draft beer from Market vendor Hopsters Alley or local wine from Massachusetts Wine Shop, along with live music. Customers can visit the Market’s 40 local vendors to find complementary food options and specials like sandwiches, cheese plates, pretzels, charcuterie, and sweets. The weekly event is weather permitting and ages 21+ only.
“We loved seeing so many neighbors at our pop-up beer garden last month, and it’s a great way to introduce new friends to the Market and our local vendors,” said Cheryl Cronin, CEO of the Boston Public Market. “We’re excited to be filling the need for an outdoor feature like this, and we plan to explore how ‘Local Libations’ can be a long-term part of Boston’s growing Market District on the Greenway.”
