Fish market to open Wednesday at a former landfill site in Boston’s southwest neighborhood.
The Boston Fish market is part of a new effort to provide the city with fresh seafood.
The site, at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Boston Street, is located between two old coal ash ponds, which are now a site for the Boston Public Library and a landfill.
The market will have a market tent that will have vendors selling fresh seafood, fish and fish products.
The market is scheduled to open at 6 p.m. and close at 6 a.m., the Boston Redevelopment Authority said.
The city also will open a market at the Boston Fish Museum in North End in April.
The new site is in the former D-I-V site that is part-owned by the city of Boston.
The new market is the second in the area and the first in Boston.
In 2013, the city opened a new fish market at a landfill site that also will be home to the Boston Police Department and a public library.
