Boston Public Market is open for business

               The much-awaited Boston Public Market opened its doors mid-summer on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway directly above the Haymarket MBTA station near City Hall. The goal to have a year-round indoor market with vendors selling local produce, fish, gourmet treats, and more in Boston has been a long time coming, and from the smiling faces I saw during my recent trip to the market, it was worth the wait.

Below is a preview of the dairy selections available at the Boston Public Market, though the best way to enjoy the market is to go visit these vendors and sample their offerings.

Appleton Farms: Appleton Farms is the nation’s oldest continually operating farm located in Ipswich, MA. Their stand features products made from the farm’s Jersey dairy herd including bottled milk, plain and flavored yogurts, and a selection of cheeses.

Wolf Meadow Farm: Wolf Meadow Farm offers Italian-style cheeses made with locally sourced milk. All milk comes from Massachusetts and is turned into cheese the day after it is collected, per the company’s philosophy, “Import the cheesemaker, not the cheese!”
