The Boston Public Market hosts a prospective vendor reception on Oct. 2 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. for interested businesses, both long-term and short, who will have the chance to tour the Market, hear from current business owners and learn about the opportunity. RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org/.
Currently the market has nearly 40 vendors who, in their first month, welcomed more than 150,000 customers, says CEO Liz Morningstar. The Market currently supports more than 200 local jobs and is seeing more than 20,000 visitors on weekends. In the first month, the KITCHEN, programmed by the Trustees of the Reservation, held 50 classes with more than 800 attendees.
Both permanent and short term opportunities are available for food growers and producers. The aim is to provide fresh, healthy food and serve as a destination for locally sourced groceries. Vendors of fresh, whole foods (produce, shellfish, grains and legumes and bakery items) as opposed to prepared items, are encouraged to apply.
