The new Boston Public Market has opened in the Haymarket station, and business is booming. With all foods locally sourced, shoppers can get a taste of the epicurean side of Massachusetts. Boston Honey Company provides free tastings and has a observation hive. We picked up a couple of ribeye steaks from Lilac Hedge Farm, and they did not disappoint. Boston Smoked Fish Company also has free samples, do not miss them! There are too many shops to discuss, but know that you can get all of your vegetables, cheese, meats, fish, beer, and even lunch at the market.
So the next time you are looking for something that is authentically Boston, skip the Harvard shirt and but something from people trying to make ends meet in a sustainable fashion.
