The SoWa market is a local gem just 30 minutes from the Boston luxury apartments at NEMA. Like the city itself, it combines New England’s natural bounty with Boston’s cosmopolitan sense of creativity, offering stimulating Sundays of connecting with art and nature. Comprising both a farmers market and a vintage market, along with a host of food vendors, it’s one of the best ways to spend time outdoors in the city while collecting specialties for your kitchen as well as fine art and vintage decor.
One of the most notable aspects of the market is that it's personal — you have the opportunity to get to know your makers and growers of local produce, bath and body products, cooking and kitchen goods, prepared foods, and original works of art. Purchase zucchinis and flowers just plucked from the soil at the Autumn’s Fresh Picked stand and you are not only supporting a nearby farm but starting a relationship. Other local farms at the market include The Dahlia Farm, which offers a wide selection of vegetables as well as sunflowers and soap, and Spring Brook Farm, which specializes in lettuces and fresh, award-winning meats.
From Duxbury by way of Emilia, Italy, Lara Ferri brings her spectacular sauces and standout pesto to the market in the form of Lara’s Cuisine, giving you a chance to throw together a quick dinner with some pasta, veggies from the market, and her marvelous homemade preparations. You will never leave this market at a loss for what to do for dinner, and you may very well have breakfast and lunch covered, too. While you shop, you can savor aromatic small-batch roasted coffee from Karma Coffee, handmade breads and pastries from Pain D’Avignon, fresh-baked fruit pies from Cannistraci Fine Foods, and locally sourced and sustainable smoked fish from Matt’s The Amazing Smokehouse. You can also find tasty snacks to take with you at the pop-up cafe from Johnny Burke Catering.
At the arts section of the market, browse handmade jewelry, fine art and ceramics, photography, clothes, and home goods. There is also the stellar vintage market, where you will find a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind curios and collectibles.
More than just a way to spend a day, the SoWa market is a gathering of the creative and slow-food communities that help make the neighborhood so special. It's one of the many ways that life at the Boston Seaport apartments at NEMA combines the riches of the city with the personal touch of a community bound together by passion and good taste.
