Letter to the Editor

Boston Public Market now open daily

Dear Editor:

Since the Boston Public Market opened last summer, you’ve welcomed us with open arms, and helped us succeed in our mission to provide fresh, healthy food to consumers of all income levels, nourish our community and educate the public about food sources, nutrition, and preparation.

In just 11 months, we’ve welcomed over 1.6 million visitors, and our 40 local vendors have seen over $11 million total in sales – both surpassing initial projections. We’re proud that the community’s support for local food has allowed five of the Market’s vendors to expand their spaces since the market opened, including four farms. We’ve hosted dozens of school groups, recently formalized a field trip program and continue to debut engaging curriculum for young eaters.

Because of your overwhelming support, we’re incredibly excited to reach a desired milestone—we’re extending our hours to be open every day of the week, year-round. We are grateful for the opportunity to watch the market grow, support small businesses and supply you – our neighbors – with fresh, local food.

Beginning Monday, July 18, the Market’s opening hours will be 8 a.m. — 8 p.m. Monday — Saturday and 10 a.m. — 8 p.m. on Sundays. On behalf of all of us at the Boston Public Market, we look forward to welcoming you to the market — to shop for groceries, grab a bite to eat or learn something new — every day of the week.

 

Cheryl Cronin

CEO, Boston Public Market
