Fall Fundraising Event Celebrates the Harvest Season with New England Food, Craft Beer & Cider, and Live Music on Thursday, October 25th  

BOSTON (September 2018) — The Boston Public Market Association (BPMA), a not-for-profit-organization that operates the Boston Public Market, located at 100 Hanover Street, will host its third annual Harvest Party celebration on Thursday, October 25, 7-10pm.

An evening designed to showcase the best of New England, guests will be invited to celebrate with over 30 BPM vendor food samples, 10 New England brewery & cidery pop-ups, live music and dancing, a $500 shopping spree for two lucky winners, auction prizes, swag bags, and photos with BPM’s annual giant “Pumpking”. Proceeds from the event will support the Boston Public Market’s Community Engagement Fund, which offers free, public, seed-to-skillet educational experiences within the Market’s walls and throughout the local community.

This year, 10 New England breweries and cideries will be paired with BPM vendors to offer sample bites and brews pairings, including: Stoneface Brewing, Turtle Swamp Brewing, Foolproof Brewing, Switchback Brewing, Champlain Orchards, Remnant Brewing, Downeast Cider, Ponyshack Cider, Harpoon Brewery, and Allagash Brewing.

“It’s been an exciting year for us at the Boston Public Market, filled with new opportunities for growth and development, and we are thrilled to celebrate at our third annual Harvest Party,” said Cheryl Cronin, CEO of the Boston Public Market. “The party is a great opportunity to gather our community of vendors, customers, partners, and neighbors and celebrate everyone’s dedication and support of the Market. All proceeds from the event will support our Community Engagement Fund, allowing us to continue to engage the local community through a variety of free programming.”

Tickets can be purchased online via Eventbrite for $50. Presented by Citizens Bank, this year’s Harvest Party is made possible by local sponsors including Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Eataly Boston, Dig Inn, Polar Beverages, The Improper Bostonian, Yankee magazine, Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts, AAFCPAs, The Conservation Fund, and All Heart PR.

Since opening its doors in July of 2015 after more than a decade of planning, the Boston Public Market has welcomed more than 6 million visitors, and has provided affordable locations for more than 35 local makers at 100 Hanover Street. In addition to support from Mayor Marty Walsh and Governor Charlie Baker, the Boston Public Market’s public impact has been recognized by several local publications, including The Improper Bostonian, The Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, NECN and more. Last month, the Boston Public Market Association also announced that it will be opening a second location in Boston Logan International Airport’s Terminal C, slated to open Spring 2019. The 6,000-square-foot outpost at Logan will reflect the same mission and high quality food as BPMA’s flagship market and supply Logan Airport’s more than 30 million annual travelers with fresh, locally-sourced food from Massachusetts and New England for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
