Boston's SoWA Farmers Market

The smell of fresh flowers, the vibrant colors of fruits and vegetables, the delightful squeals of children, and the delicious aroma wafting from the food trucks – there is something wonderfully romantic about going to a farmers market on a Sunday morning. Thanks to SoWA Sundays, you can now do just that when you are in Boston. SoWA, which stands for South of Washington and located at Boston’s south end (460 Harrison Ave., Boston MA), is a hip and vibrant district lined with stores selling locally-made arts and crafts as well as artisan jewelleries. On a regular day, the area is lively with thriving local businesses, boutique stores, artists’ studios, and some of the city’s best restaurants. On Sundays, though, this district is transformed into a collection of open-air markets famously known as the SoWA Open Market. Open from May through October, the market itself is a collection three distinct groups comprising of an award-winning Farmers’ Market, a rotating group of Indie makers and designers at the Arts Market, as well as SoWA Food Trucks galore. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, it is obvious that the market is well loved by both locals and tourists alike, as evident from the 5,000 visitors it sees every Sunday. So, Weekendtrippers, next time you are in Boston, do yourself a favour and don’t forget to browse around at the SoWA Open Market!
