Boston Public Market is about to get more doughy: Somerville Bread Company will open a retail space at the downtown market and is now hiring employees to staff the venture. The local organic artisan bread company, led by Nick Robertson, could add the Boston retail space to its existing Somerville storefront by mid-October.
"The thought is we’ll still continue to do all the baking at our Somerville location," Robertson told Eater. A neat component of the Boston Public Market space, he said, will be a stone mill to provide customers with fresh milled flour on the spot. The retail space will follow the bread schedule of the larger shop, which has been open since February, offering items such as baguettes, focaccia, German rye bread, and much more.
Somerville Bread Company also formed a partnership with the forthcoming restaurant Chelsea Station, Robertson said. He will be providing the bread products for the restaurant, which is getting ready to open very soon in an old firehouse in Chelsea.
