Welcome to Greater Ashmont Main Street! Greater Ashmont was designated as one of Boston's Main Street Districts in the summer of 1999. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation that brings together local businesses, residents, neighborhood organizations and community partners to strengthen the Greater Ashmont business district and the entire community. Our commercial district includes more than 100 businesses in almost 400,000 square feet of commercial and institutional space, and serves more than 30,000 residents, workers and commuters. We invite you to join us in our efforts to make the Greater Ashmont district an even better place to live, work, and play!

After several years of planning, St. Mark’s Area Main Street is re-branding itself to better align our organizational name with all the work we hope to accomplish for this diverse and growing Main Street District. The re-branding is being coordinated with Boston Main Streets own re-design and is being supported financially by a generous private foundation grant, as well as  pro bono services from marketing and design industry professionals. We are in the process of updating our name everywhere necessary (website, social media channels, legal documents, signage, etc.) and hope to have all re-branding work complete by the start of our Farmers Market at the end of June.  Thank you for your patience! All prior email addresses and the web address will redirect to the newly branded versions for several years to come, to allow folks time to become updated.
