The DRD in the Big City: SoWa Market, Boston

Went today to the Boston SoWa Open Market, which is open every Sunday from May through October in Boston and brings together food trucks, a farmer's market and local artists for what I think is one of the city's best new additions. Tucked into two spacious parking lots next to a some galleries and cafes, the Open Market is teeming with Bostonians, good food, and some great art and collectibles (including an incredible indoor space with vintage and antique goods). It's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in the city, especially if you're looking for something a little different from the public garden or Faneuil Hall. It's a happening place. So get over there.

After doing a bit of searching, I got a banh mi grilled chicken sandwich from the Bon Me food truck.  It was fresh and refreshing, with  the fresh crunch of pickled carrot and daikon along with other crunchy vegetables, mayo, pate and chicken. I would have liked a little more flavor punch packed in, but it was really pretty good (mayo and pate in one sandwich, it has to be good). Add a ginger lemonade, and you really can't complain.

It's good to see this kind of market coming to Boston, since I know this type of thing has existed in other U.S. cities for a while (Brooklyn, Portland, etc...). It's accessible for all types of food and art start ups, so it means your getting innovative, interesting, fresh ideas (food and otherwise) coming at your at very reasonable prices. It's the best collection of, well, anything and everything I've seen around in a long time. I'm certainly glad it's here to stay.
