The publication named the Boston Public Market among the country’s 10 best public markets on Friday, part of its 2022 10Best Reader’s Choice Awards. Boston Public Market ranked No. 4.

This year-round, indoor market features 30 New England food producers and artisans selling fresh produce, prepared foods, crafts and other specialty items. Everything sold comes from New England with a focus on seasonality.
