Boston Public Market officials said they are gearing up for the Wednesday launch of its outdoor seasonal market along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and near the Haymarket MBTA station.

More than 20 vendors will be selling produce sourced from New England on Mondays and Wednesdays until November, according to Boston Public Market, the nonprofit that will manage the facility. Flowers and spices are expected to be available as well.

The hope is that next year, the seasonal farmers market will be joined by the year-round indoor Boston Public Market. At full capacity, the indoor and outdoor markets will be able to accommodate almost 100 vendors, Boston Public Market said.

Last month, the plan for the indoor market was approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority, a Globe story noted.

The plan is to transform an empty, state-owned building into a showcase for local farmers, fisherman, and specialty food makers.

Among the dignitaries expected to attend the Wednesday launch ceremony for the outdoor market are Governor Patrick and John Barros, Boston’s chief of economic development, market officials said.
