Boston Public Market
The Boston Public Farmers Market offers an amazing, one-of-a-kind venue that is found outdoors next to the Boston Public Market and not within like the name might suggest. The market is famous for being the only farmers market in the U.S. which strictly sell local food produce. It is divided into several different sections, each of which highlights a specific type of vendor selected by the operator. You will love strolling along the pedestrian-friendly sidewalks featured in the retail and agribusiness sections, while trucks stay far away in the wholesale vendor section. Be sure to check all local produce and meats. The Market is open on Sundays and Wednesdays and is conveniently located near the Boston Public Market which opens on a daily basis.
Copley Square Farmers Market
If you are looking for more of a special, twice a week market, check out the Copley Square Farmers Market situated morning from 8 until noon. The market is strategically located near the local Public Library and Trinity church among other great institutions and features dozens of local vendors. You’ll love the selection of fresh and local meats, produce, and artisan food products, fish, flowers as well as the variety of locally made arts, crafts, soaps, and jewelry products. You can spend the morning shopping the great buys on the market, and then spend the afternoon exploring the library.
Sowa Open Market
As one of the largest open-air farmers’ markets in Boston, MA sits on a relatively large area on the southern end. The market features dozens of participating farmers, and you can find a variety of fruits, vegetables, eggs, homemade preserves, honey, baked goods, and meats among other products. Almost every vendor has samples of seasonal fruits and vegetables for people to try. Sampling is something the kids thoroughly enjoy and is a great way to introduce them to new flavors. While the kids may be picky eaters at home, at the farmers’ market, they try and enjoy almost everything!
