The Boston Public Market is hosting a public vote to choose the design of two artistic bike racks that will be installed outside the upcoming local food market, ensuring access to the market for customers arriving by bike. The Market partnered with Boston teens from Artists for Humanity to design nine artistic bike rack options that represent the Market’s themes of fresh, local food and the connection between farmer and consumer.
The Boston Public Market, located at 100 Hanover Street above the Haymarket MBTA station, will be open Wednesday — Sunday, 8 a.m. — 8 p.m, beginning on July 30. The only locally-sourced market of its kind in the United States, it houses over 35 farmers, fishermen, and food producers from Massachusetts and throughout New England, selling items such as farm fresh produce; meat and poultry; eggs; milk and cheese; fish and shellfish; bread and baked goods; flowers; and an assortment of specialty and prepared foods.
Members of the public can vote on their favorite bike rack designs here. Voting ends on Wednesday, July 8, and voting results will be showcased on the Boston Public Market’s blog.
