Bee's Knees Supply Company Is Opening in Allston
A gourmet market in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood is opening a second location in another part of the city.
According to a source (and also mentioned by a Chowhound poster), Bee's Knees Supply Company is going to be opening in the former Joshua Tree space in Allston, with the source saying that the market could be opening sometime this month. Last month we had posted that Jason Owens of Bee's Knees was planning to open a food market with beer and wine in the Commonwealth Avenue space, but it was not known at that point in time whether it would be a completely new market or a second location of the Fort Point shop.
It is not yet clear whether the Allston location of Bee's Knees will be similar to the Fort Point location; as soon as we find out, we will post an update here.
[August 2 update: The Boston Globe states that the Allston location of Bee's Knees plans to open sometime this month, and that it will include a dine-in deli, a juice bar with seating for 20, craft beers and wine, and Stumptown coffee.]
[August 4 update: A phone call placed to the store indicates that the Allston location of Bee's Knees Supply Company is now open.]
Bee's Knees first opened in Fort Point in March of 2013.
The address for this new market in Allston is: Bee's Knees Supply Company, 1314 Commonwealth Avenue, Allston, MA, 02134. The website for Bee's Knees can be found at http://www.beeskneessupply.com/
