Two New Vendors Join the Boston Public Market
Boston Public Market opened this summer with nearly 40 New England vendors dealing in all manner of edibles and artisan products, and two local companies entered the scene over the past few days. Allston-based, family-owned Swissbäkers has opened its third retail location, and the Massachusetts Farm Wineries and Growers Association is behind the Massachusetts Wine Shop.
Helene and Thomas Stohr launched Swissbäkers in 1998 with pretzel baguettes, zöphli, filled doughnuts, tarts, and other baked goods from their native Switzerland. The brand has expanded from Allston with a brick-and-mortar shop in Reading, and products are also available at some area Whole Foods, other local stores, and farmers markets. Swissbäkers debuted at the Boston Public Market on Friday, Thomas Stohr said, with freshly-baked croissants, pretzels, cookies, quiche, muesli, and breakfast and lunch sandwiches.
Massachusetts Wine Shop brings together 25 vineyards and wineries from the Commonwealth to offer a selection of red, white, sparkling, and fruit wines, as well as hard cider and mead. At the Boston Public Market, the Farm Wineries and Growers Association will eventually offer tastings, in addition to the retail shop that opens today.
“When we opened in July, we held back space to accommodate future vendors, knowing that we’ll always be evolving, and we’re delighted to welcome new additions to the Market,” Boston Public Market manager Tiffani Emig said in a press release.
The market, located at the Haymarket MBTA station right off the Rose Kennedy Greenway, is open Wednesday – Sunday from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., year-round.
