Earlier this year, we reported that a gourmet market in one of Boston's hottest neighborhoods was seized by the state for nonpayment of taxes. Now it appears that the shop will not be reopening again.
According to a tweet from @DGoodison, Bee's Knees Supply Company in Fort Point is going on the auction block on Wednesday, April 26, with a post from E.F. Smith & Son saying that a variety of new and used equipment will be available which will be sold on the premises of the Farnsworth Street space starting at 11:00 AM. In January, we had mentioned that the shop was locked up and dark, and one day later it was learned that a "Seized" sign was out front saying that it was in the possession of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Bee's Knees first opened in Fort Point in March of 2013, while a second shop (which has since closed as well) opened on Commonwealth Avenue in Allston two years later.
The address for the now-closed Bee's Knees Supply Company in Fort Point was 12 Farnsworth Street, Boston, MA, 02210.
