November Happenings

Find Ingredients, Recipes, and Decor for your Thanksgiving Table

November is a month of family, gratitude, and turkey. Whether you are attending a Friendsgiving or hosting forty family members for Thanksgiving, the Boston Public Market is a one-stop-shop source for fresh, locally sourced ingredients and everything you need for your meal.

Make your Thanksgiving a #BPMThanksgiving! Feature a fresh, local turkey from Chestnut Farms or Stillman Quality Meats, seafood items from Red’s Best, potatoes, brussels sprouts, and carrots from Siena Farms or Stillman’s Farm, and enhance your dinner table with a gorgeous centerpiece from Stow Greenhouses.

Visit the Dinner Tonight display at the Market to find take-home recipes for every dish on your Thanksgiving table and make each step of your holiday meal prep, from shopping to cooking, a piece-of-cake.

We’ll make the shopping task even easier: between November 19-23, the Boston Public Market will offer a Market-to-door grocery bag delivery service so customers can stock up without shopping ‘til they drop. And in the spirit of giving back, from November 17-20, purchase extra items at the Market to be donated to our community members in need through our partnership with Fresh Truck.

Visit the Boston Public Market throughout the full holiday season for more programs, seasonal products, and locally sourced gifts for friends and family.
