The Boston Public Market is the perfect place to grab dinner, a drink, or some local products or produce. Each booth and food stall had their own local spin, highlighting the best of Massachusetts and New England. Everything from desserts to drinks, local honeycomb, and marble serving slabs all perfectly displayed.
Starting with the indoor portion of the Boston Public Market, I was greeted by a local craft apple cider booth with a ‘larger than life’ apple press, designed to crush fresh, in-season apples and turn them into sweet and smooth cider or apple butter.
Yes, please! I’ll take the bloomy, closed blind, soft cheese. And don’t forget the crackers!
After passing through the cheese selections, I moved on to the specialty hand crafted pasta booth. I spotted beet, sriracha, and wasabi flavored fresh pasta – the bold daily selections were so intriguing! I had never seen pasta flavored with such distinctive ingredients.
The fresh produce selections were also pretty impressive. I spotted some adorable tiny green-striped yellow African eggplants and vibrant purple speckled dragon tongue beans.
The home goods section of the Boston Public Market displayed stunning woodwork items, like smooth bowls garnished with a bark rim – perfect for a rustic kitchen!
Honey also caught my eye, with whole honeycomb available for purchase. Want a honey candle shaped like a petite beehive? Or honey skin products? Buzz on over to this honey-dripped booth with only local honey products.
Stepping out into the open-air Boston Public Market, this seasonal outdoor market was much more crowded and chaiotic than the indoor market. The produce was overflowing, vendors were calling out to the swarming customers, fresh oysters were being shucked into the crowd, it was quite an exciting scene.
The open air Boston Public Market is seasonal and only open from May to November. Lucky for me I was in town just before they were about to close for the season. The market is located right in the heart of Boston, very close to some of my favorite restaurants (Five Best Bites in Boston article found here), like the oldest restaurant in the US.
