The location of the Bee's Knees Supply Company.

The Fort Point neighborhood will soon be home to the city’s newest gourmet grocery store as the Bee’s Knees Supply Co. readies to open at 12 Farnsworth St.

The 5,500-square-foot shop plans to offer a large selection of cheeses, locally made chocolates, ice creams, locally grown produce, and pre-made foods.

“This market isn’t like a supermarket or your corner store,” said owner Jason Owens, who helped start South Boston's Local 149 and American Provisions.

The store is slated to open mid-week in the neighborhood, which Owen’s said is a great fit for his shop.

“[Fort Point] is a great historic area of Boston and it has a lot of character,” said Owens. “This neighborhood is perfect for a progressive shop format.”

In addition to the retail options, the store will also feature a full-time chef, in-house pickling, wine tastings, and cooking classes.
