Boston Public Market Opens Marketplace at Boston Logan International Airport
Grand Opening celebration welcomes “BPM Logan” to airport’s offering of local fare
BOSTON, Mass., (Oct. 18, 2022) Boston Public Market (BPM), a diverse collection of local food and crafts, debuted its sister location at Boston Logan International Airport on Tuesday, October 18, with a grand opening celebration. “BPM at Boston Logan” is operated by global restaurateur HMSHost in partnership with MarketPlace Development.
BPM Logan gives airport visitors a taste of local delights from downtown Boston’s popular Boston Public Market. The new location is proud to feature many of the same food vendors that are staples of the original location. Designed to mirror the 100 Hanover Street location in downtown Boston, vendors display offerings in stall-style units surrounded by corrugated metal and salvaged barn board accents. Seating is available in the center of the space, and a “HUB” board displays Market news and promotions.
"We are proud to partner with Boston Public Market as they open a location inside Boston Logan Airport," said Massport Director of Aviation Ed Freni. "The Market offers a variety of products that celebrate New England and it is another great spot for our passengers to enjoy while they're at Logan."
“Our goal at HMSHost is to combine culinary expertise, exemplary customer service, innovation, unique events and experiences to deliver an exceptional dining experience for travelers,” said Steve Johnson, CEO and President of HMSHost. “Travelers on layovers don’t always have time to get into Boston to taste the local flavors, so we partnered with Boston Public Market to bring Boston’s best culinary offerings into the terminal.”
BPM Logan’s menu features the most popular items by and from vendors at the Hanover Street location and is based on lifestyle trends fueling the demand for healthier, local food at airports.
Our partnership with HMSHost and MarketPlace allows us to open a second location and expand our ability to provide fresh, local food to Boston-area residents and travelers,” said Cheryl Cronin, CEO of the Boston Public Market. “We admire MassPort’s commitment to restructuring their food and beverage options to be healthier and more progressive as consumers want to feed their families simple, good food.”
Other vendors featured in the new airport location include: Beantown Pastrami, offering pastrami and corned beef sandwiches, pastrami burgers and homemade sides like half-sour pickles and coleslaw, Market Bagels, offering a wide variety of freshly made bagels, cream cheese spreads, and bagel sandwiches, Mother Juice, a selection of made-to-order smoothies, cold-pressed juices, salads, and more and Red’s Best, fresh lobster rolls, fish sandwiches, seafood-focused salads and more.
Concepts unique to BPM Logan include: BPM Fresh Eats, a fresh, seasonally focused salad bar stocked with locally sourced produce, as the seasons permit, BPM On the Fly, offering quick, grab-and-go snacks and small gifts and artisanal items from a variety of local vendors and Market Bar, a full-service bar highlighting New England-sourced beer, wine and liquor.
“We remain committed in providing local favorites when it comes to our brands at Boston Logan with the best food, beverage and retail that Boston and New England have to offer travelers. As we continue to elevate our passenger experience, Boston Public Market is the perfect example of our commitment to bringing our local roots to the airport,” said Michael DiCosola, President, MarketPlace Development.
Additional local influences to be featured at BPM Logan include the artwork of artist Laurel Greenfield, a Boston-based painter capturing nostalgic food memories in vibrant color, and George Howell Coffee.
