Important food news this morning: from the pages of the Boston Globe comes word that Governor Deval Patrick has pledged $10m in financing toward establishing the city’s first year-round Public Food Market since the last one closed in the 1950s. The funding, awarded to the Boston Public Market Association, helps clear a major financial hurdle toward getting the market — which will provide a year-round indoor facility for local vendors and producers to showcase their goods – off the ground. According to the Globe, the market could be up and running by the end of 2011, though additional sources of funding will still be needed. It’s a potentially enormous development for the people of the city.
