Locavores can rejoice that The Boston Public Market Association’s Seaport Farmer’s Market is going on through October. From 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday residents and visitors to the Seaport can find fresh, seasonal, locally sourced food from Massachusetts and New England vendors at One Seaport, 60 Seaport Boulevard.
This fresh air version of the popular year-round indoor Boston Public Market on Hanover Street delivers fresh vegetables, fruit and meat from farms such as Stillman’s (Lunenburg and Braintree) artisan breads from bakeries like When Pigs Fly and local fish from Boston-based seafood wholesaler Red’s Best. The Seaport market embraces Boston Public Market’s dedication to bringing together “farmers, fishers, food entrepreneurs, neighbors, customers, and partners around the common culture of food.”
Red’s Best founder and CEO Jared Auerbach is thrilled to be selling locally caught seafood right at the Seaport, where his company’s offices are located. “It is incredibly cool to be working at a 110-year-old pier,” he says. “Bostonians should know they have access not only to fresh seafood but the whole history of a world-renowned fishing industry right here in their backyard.”
Seaport Farmer’s Market customers also have a chance to taste some local beer and freshly made tacos right around the corner at Cisco Brewers’ pop-up beer garden. The pop up is located on Seaport Boulevard just west of District Hall near the MBTA Silver Line’s Courthouse Station. The Nantucket-based brewery offers craft beers, wines and ciders Wednesdays through Fridays from 4 to 11 p.m. and on Saturdays from noon to 11 p.m. And to to complement your chosen beverage Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar is on site to provide shellfish and Mexican snacks. The outdoor beer garden is slated to operate through October (weather permitting).
