Every Sunday during the summer, a few parking lots in the South End of Boston are overtaken by arts and crafts vendors, a farmer’s market, and a vintage market. These markets, plus bevy of food trucks, make up the SoWa Open Market. Today was summer perfection: high 70s and sunny, the perfect weather for a trip down to the South End.
The walk from Back Bay to SoWa took me through one of my favorite parts of the city. The brownstones are reminiscent of those in New York City, and the area has a calm that isn’t found in most of Boston. People were out walking their dogs, spending time with family, and enjoying the sun. The light was fantastic.
The market was busy when I arrived and I was tempted by the many different jewelry stands, but I spent most of my time in the vintage market. The colors and textures were what most caught my eye:
If you’re in the market for anything vintage, hand-crafted, or fresh from the earth, definitely check out the SoWa markets. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
