The SOWA Open Market was established in 2003 and has been open every Sunday, May 1st through October 30th 10am-4pm at 460 Harrison Avenue. I love walking over to Harrison, grabbing some local fruits and veg, bread and herbs at the farmer stalls and window shopping all the crafts, artisans and food trucks. It is really wonderful to chat and meet the local artisans you are purchasing from and a lot of the artisans have Etsy websites as well. Since opening, we have purchased art, cute gifts, homemade purses, jewelry, leather goods and vintage items.
It has taken Boston some time to gain mass in the Food Truck movement, but I am glad it has finally hit. Although California has had the burger, korean bbq trucks, NYC has had the ice cream and frozen yogurt trucks for some time as well. Boston now has a great variety of cuisine featured and I have yet to try them all.
