The Bees Knees Opens on Monday

Jason Owens.

Jason Owens's gourmet food shop in Fort Point is set to open on Monday, a rep confirms to Grub Street. Expect a big selection of wine, craft beer, meat, seafood, and produce ... and we're told that the market will have the largest cheese selection in downtown Boston.

The market will also have its very own chocolatier: Jennifer Turner, who owns South Boston's Blue Tierra Chocolates. It will also be the first market to offer JP's Batch Ice Cream. It's located at 12 Farnsworth St., right next door to Flour Bakery. A nice counter(Fort)point to the big chains up the way at the Seaport! [Earlier]
