Update: Marshall's Fenway Farm Stand Is NOT Closing

[Ed note: This article was edited on January 31 to reflect the fact that Marshall's will not be closing after all.]

A farm stand in the heart of Boston's Fenway neighborhood that looked to be closing has gotten a new lease on life.

According to an earlier note on their Facebook page, Marshall's Fenway Farm Stand on Boylston Street was supposed to have shut its doors on Sunday, January 29, with the post mentioning that their lease was up and they did not have another spot available at the present time. A poster on the Chowhound site had said that the building in which Marshall's resides was going to be torn down to make way for a "high rise of expensive condos and a Target."

A more recent Facebook note, however (on Tuesday, January 31--thanks to the poster below for letting us know), indicates that Marshall's will NOT be closing, and that they will apparently be reopening next Monday (February 6). Hours for Marshall's will be 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM, except for Wednesdays and Sundays, when they are apparently closed. The note on their page concludes with a "big Samuels Associates for listening to the Fenway Community."

The folks behind Marshall's Fenway Farm Stand also have a farm stand on Concord Street in Gloucester.

The address for Marshall's in Boston is: Marshall's Fenway Farm Stand, 1345 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02215. Their website can be found at
