Boston Public Market Seeks Vendor Applications

The Boston Public Market is now seeking local businesses interested in becoming permanent vendors at the planned indoor market on the Greenway expected to open in June of 2015. The market will showcase the variety and quality of food grown, produced, or caught in Massachusetts and throughout New England. Applications are due by May 9, 2014.

The indoor vending floor of the Market will accommodate up to 45 permanent growers and producers.  Businesses that educate their customers about their products and local food production, and those that represent the variety of interest and diversity of backgrounds within our community are encouraged to apply.

This new opportunity will offer prime retail space for local producers in the heart of Boston’s emerging Market District.  Located above the Orange and Green line Haymarket T station, the Boston Public Market enjoys high visibility and heavy foot traffic driven by North End, West End, and Beacon Hill residents, visitors, commuters and the more than 102,000 employees in the Financial District and Government Center.

There will also be an outdoor market running May-December located along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway that can accommodate up to 20 additional vendors. The outdoor market is held to the same local sourcing standards as the permanent interior vendors, but is more flexible, leasing space by season or by month. The exterior market will launch in Spring of this year.

All vendors interested in leasing space must submit their ‘Intent to Apply’ by May 9 to Vendor@bostonpublicmarket.org or PO Box 52385, Boston, MA 02205.
