For an old vent leftover from the Big Dig, 100 Hanover Street smelled pretty good. The scent of warm apple-cider donuts, roasted nuts and earthy vegetables permeated the air. Long gone were the fumes of the Interstate-93 tunnel.
Now in its second year, Boston Public Market dominates the corner of Congress and Hanover Street. At 28,000 square feet, the space is home to 40 permanent vendors and a rotating cast of “pop up” merchants. Dedicated to providing Boston with fresh, locally sourced fruits, cheeses, fish, pastas, baked goods and more, the Market is as colorful and tasty as it is pleasantly fragrant.
As part of HUBweek, Boston Public Market offered a behind the scenes tour.
