The Boston Public Market Association, on whose board I serve, has been promised $10M and a home in an existing building. BPMA will use that money to plan and build a public food market selling local food.
The building will provide more than twenty thousand square feet of space for vendors, and is located in a neighborhood with heavy foot traffic near subway lines, bus lines, and commuter rail lines.
This is a major step forward for the BPMA. Thank you to everyone who emailed the governor on our behalf!
Some details in this Boston Globe story.
