Bees Knees Supply Co. Is Opening in Boston's Fort Point Neighborhood
It looks like a former industrial section of Boston that is now home to many artists will soon have a food market.
The Boston Globe reports that Jason Owens, who is one of the people behind the American Provisions gourmet food store in South Boston, is planning to open a market on the ground floor of an office building on Farnsworth Street, which is in the Fort Point section of the city. The article (along with a post from Grub Street Boston) mentions that the food market, which does not yet have a name, will sell fresh produce, beer and wine, meats, cheeses, and more. Once it opens, the market will share the building with various businesses, including a location of Flour Bakery and Cafe.
[October 2 update: The Chowder blog of Boston Magazine states that the new market will be called Bees Knees Supply Co., and it could be open by Thanksgiving. Chowder also says that the store will have a cafe and outdoor patio, cooking classes and demos, and wine tastings and wine dinners.]
[March 25 update: UrbanDaddy says that Bees Knees is now open.]
[March 26 update: Grub Street Boston mentions that Bees Knees actually opens today (the place had a slight delay in the opening).]
Owens also was one of the people behind The Biltmore Bar and Grill in Newton along with Local 149 in Southie, but Grub Street Boston mentions that he has left the two restaurants in order to concentrate on his markets.
The address for this food market in Fort Point is 12 Farnsworth Street, Boston, MA, 02210.
