The Boston Public Market is an indoor, year-round marketplace featuring 35 New England artisans and food producers housed under one roof offering fresh foods, prepared meals, crafts, and specialty items. Residents and visitors alike can find seasonal, locally sourced food from Massachusetts and New England, including fresh produce, meat and poultry, eggs, dairy, seafood, baked goods, specialty items, crafts, and prepared breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. Everything sold at the Market is produced or originates in New England, as the seasons allow.

The Market is a civic, community-building space for farmers, fishers, food entrepreneurs, neighbors, customers, and partners who come together around the common culture of food. We create opportunity for small businesses to thrive, and nourish our community with experiences, conversation, and education about public health and the impact of buying local food. Year-round festivals, workshops, cooking classes, and tours create an engaging, educational experience and a vibrant environment for everyone.

Clarke Watermark
Clarke has been a cornerstone of the appliance industry in New England. In 1955, Jim Clarke Sr. opened his own appliance store, The Clarke Electric Company, in Stamford, CT. Four years later, he went to a trade show in Chicago and met Westye Bakke, the founder of Sub-Zero. He soon became their number one independent sales rep. Fast-forward to 1991, when Tom Clarke (Jim’s son) launched Clarke Distribution Corporation when he was chosen as Sub-Zero’s first wholesale distributor in New England. From just 6 employees and one small showroom, Clarke has grown to be the nation’s most exemplary distributor with three award-winning showrooms, a Culinary Center teaching cooking to homeowners throughout New England, a nationally known appliance service company and a network of stellar independent retail dealers. Clarke now represents high-performance brands including: Sub-Zero, Wolf, Asko, Best, Dawn, Waterstone, and Scotsman.
