Boston Public Market (100 Hanover St., downtown Boston) added a new vendor to its lineup this week: Hi-Rise Bread Company opened a new retail storefront within the market, adding to its existing cafes in Cambridge.

Situated in the former George Howell Coffee stall (which has moved to another area of the market) and in front of the Popover Lady, Hi-Rise is selling a selection of breads, pastries, granola, and jam. The stall also plans to add soups, salads, and sandwiches to its offerings down the line.

Hi-Rise first opened in Cambridge’s Observatory Hill neighborhood at 208 Concord Ave. in 1996, and it’s long made its breads and pastries from scratch daily. A second location sits on Massachusetts Avenue between Harvard and Porter squares.

”We’re thrilled to join the Market for lots of reasons, but none is more important than the fact that we share the same values as the BPM’s vendors, employees, and customers,” said Hi-Rise owner René Becker in a press release. “Hi-Rise has been living and baking from those values since we started in 1996, and we’re really looking forward to sharing our commitment to ingredient-driven, locally sourced, handmade products with a new community.”

Becker is also behind the now-closed Shepard in Cambridge. He and his team will be opening a new Italian restaurant called Luce in the same space later this month.

Find Hi-Rise within the Boston Public Market during regular market hours, Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
