Farmers’ markets make it easy to buy fresh nutritious locally grown produce. Locavores and lovers of local historic markets will be thrilled by Boston Public Market, the latest and largest addition to Boston’s thriving farm to table scene. With over 35 vendors offering farm-fresh produce and an assortment of specialty foods, it is the only locally sourced market of its kind in the United States. Everything was grown or originates in New England. The market is located on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, above the Haymarket MBTA station in Boston’s emerging Market District. Closer to home, several neighborhood markets bring locally grown products from the farm to your table.
