SOWA Open Market is located in Boston’s South End which is walking distance or a short cab from most of the conference hotels. SOWA stands for “South of Washington” Street. At the Market you can sample the regions’ best collection of local artisans, farmers, and specialty vendors and best of all it is free to enter!
They have over 75 talented, carefully selected artisans selling an array of quality hand-made goods. Products include jewelry, art work, clothing, home goods, photography, ceramics and much more. There is also a Farmers Market where you can buy amazing produce and a Specialty Market where you can try/ buy many different pastries, cheeses, jams, syrups, and more.
Lastly over 20 of Boston’s best food trucks park at 560 Harrison Ave just next door to the Market! If you are a foodie you MUST come here! Some of my favorite trucks are Bon Me, The Cookie Monstah, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, Clover, The Chicken and Rice Guys, and so many more.
The Market is open every Sunday from 10 am – 4 pm, if you are free on a Sunday in Boston this must be on your to do list!!
