The KITCHEN at Boston Public Market, managed by The Trustees, is a community gathering space in downtown Boston that hosts hands-on classes, educational experiences and tasting demos that celebrate the season and promote healthy living in Massachusetts by connecting visitors to the farmers, artisans, lands, and waters of this region. With instruction by professional chefs, we present different cooking styles, cultures, and techniques in our culinary programs, and highlight local craft beer, wine and spirits. We also host a variety of annual festivals, hands-on artisan workshops, and other programs that promote sustainability, health, and wellness.

How is The Trustees involved? As a feature of its agricultural stewardship work across the Commonwealth, The Trustees was a founding member of The Boston Public Market and is the lead programming partner.
Trustees members receive a 20%-50% discount on all programming in The KITCHEN. If you take more than two classes per year, your membership pays for itself!
The Boston Public Market is an indoor, year round marketplace for locally sourced groceries and specialty agricultural products, where residents and visitors can find fresh, seasonal food from Massachusetts and New England. The Market houses 40 local farmers, fishers, and food entrepreneurs selling items such as farm fresh produce; meat and poultry; eggs; milk and cheese; fish and shellfish; bread and baked goods; beverages; flowers; and an assortment of specialty and prepared foods. Everything sold at the Market is produced or originates in New England.
In addition to serving as the lead programming partner for the market, The Trustees is also one of the New England-based vendors at the Market. Our Appleton Farms vendor booth features dairy products made from Appleton Farm’s Jersey herd – including bottled milk and aged cheese. With over 100 artisanal cheeses and yogurts from 20 different farms of the Massachusetts Cheese Guild, the 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.
