The KITCHEN is a 3,200 square foot, state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen that serves as a community teaching, learning, and gathering place at the Boston Public Market. The Trustees, as lead programming partner for the Market, has invited a diverse group of culinary, health, and wellness partners to develop a selection of daily programs in The KITCHEN, designed to highlight culinary experts, traditions, and local food production while inspiring healthy eating, creative cooking, and wellness among families and individuals.
The KITCHEN provides classes, workshops, and events offered by The Trustees and our partners, such as:
Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA
Rose Kennedy Greenway
Let’s Talk About Food
MA Department of Agricultural Resources
UMass Extension Nutrition Education Program
as well as our own Appleton Farms and other vendors from throughout the market.
Boston Public Market is the nation’s first permanent year-round market to feature ALL local vendors and partners. Located on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway directly above the Haymarket MBTA station, Boston Public Market provides fresh, healthy, locally-sourced food to consumers of all income levels, nourishes our community, and educates the public about food sources, nutrition and preparation.
In addition to being one of the founding partners of the market, and serving as lead programming partner, The Trustees is also one of more than 35 New England-based vendors at the Market. Our Appleton Farms vendor booth features dairy products made from Appleton’s Jersey herd - including bottled milk and aged cheese. Representing almost 100 artisanal cheeses and yogurts from 17 farms of the Massachusetts Cheese Guild, Appleton Farms’ vendor booth offers the largest selection of Massachusetts-made cheeses available anywhere. Your Trustees membership entitles you to 10% off purchases at the Appleton Farms booth and discounts on programming at The KITCHEN.
