Inspired by Compass’ recent guide to Boston’s Farmer’s Markets, I decided to share my favorite spots to pick up fresh produce, sweet treats, and help support the local economy.
SoWa Open Market
Every Sunday, over 175 makers and thousands of visitors converge in SoWa, amidst a vibrant backdrop of artist studios, galleries, boutiques and vintage shops.
Hours: Every Sunday, May-October, 10 AM – 4 PM
Copley Square Farmer’s Market
Copley Square Farmers Market features over two dozen Massachusetts farmers offering a vibrant selection of local and delicious produce and meat. The market also hosts a variety of specialty food vendors selling fresh baked bread, cheese, pasta, vegan and gluten-free snacks, fresh caught fish, smoked fish and more.
Hours: Tuesdays and Fridays, May-November, 11 AM – 6 PM
Charlestown Farmer’s Market
This market is managed by the Kennedy Center, but is located in Thompson Square. It’s smaller than some of the other markets on this list, featuring just a handful of vendors, but is still one not to be missed.
Hours : Wednesdays, June-October, 2:00 to 7:00 PM
Greenway Open Market
This is one of three of Boston Public Market’s farmer’s markets and by far my favorite featuring over 20 local producers. Products include farm fresh produce; meat, poultry, and eggs; seafood; bread and baked goods; plants and flowers; and an assortment of specialty and prepared foods, including several “grab-and-go” lunch options.
Hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays, May-November, 11:30 AM – 6:30 PM
