When the long-awaited Boston Public Market officially opens its doors on July 30, shoppers will be able to get their hands on everything from straight-from-the-farm fruits and vegetables to baked-on-site mini cider donuts to authentic Japanese ramen to stone-ground organic chocolate.

Th 28,000-square-foot space, the only locally-sourced yearlong market in the nation, will house 40 permanent vendors, run hands-on training out of a demonstration kitchen, and even offer free and low-cost fitness programming.

Ahead of the ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, the Boston Public Market offered a preview on Tuesday evening for friends, family, and the media. Take a sneak peek at the city’s new locavore destination below.
