If your New Year’s resolution was to eat more carbs, you’re in luck: The bread selection at Boston Public Market expanded on Friday with the addition of Hi-Rise Bread Company, a family-owned bakery that already has two locations in Cambridge.

Marketgoers can pick up breads, muffins, cakes, cookies, scones, jams, and granola from Hi-Rise, which also plans to sell soups, salads, and sandwiches at a later date. The vendor is located in the former George Howell Coffee space across from The Popover Lady, but don’t worry — George Howell is still brewing at the market. The coffee stand relocated across the aisle to a larger stall.


“We’re thrilled to join the market for lots of reasons, but none is more important than the fact that we share the same values as the BPM’s vendors, employees, and customers,” said René Becker, owner of Hi-Rise, in a press release. “Hi-Rise has been living and baking from those values since we started in 1996, and we’re really looking forward to sharing our commitment to ingredient-driven, locally sourced, handmade products with a new community.”

Becker runs Hi-Rise with his wife, Cynthia, and their daughter Lucie. Their original Cambridge location is at 208 Concord Ave., and another outpost is at 1663 Mass. Ave., also in Cambridge.
