Suggested Weekend Activity: The SoWa Open Market!

If you’re looking for something to do on a Sunday this summer or fall, consider visiting the SoWa Open Market! It’s a collection of vendors in the South End neighborhood of Boston. They gather along Harrison Avenue from 10:00am-4:00pm every Sunday from May to October. The market is free to go to. You can find the Arts section, where you can purchase art and handmade goods, at 460 Harrison Avenue. The Farmer’s Market, where you can purchase fresh produce, baked goods, and more is at 500 Harrison Avenue. And don’t forget the Food Truck Bazaar and Beer Garden, where you can purchase food and beverages from local restaurants!

The best way to get to the market is to take the Red Line. Take the train to Broadway and walk approximately 10 minutes to Harrison Avenue. From EC Boston, the closest Red Line Stations are Park Street and Downtown Crossing.

The food available at the SoWa market is often more affordable than the  restaurant options in the area. So, visiting the markets can be a budget-friendly trip! If you would like to go to a restaurant in the South End, it is a popular location for Sunday brunch. Many Bostonians like to go out to eat and walk through the market afterwards.

It is also a nice place to purchase unique souvenirs, gifts, and postcards for your family members and friends at home, or as decorations for your room or apartment where you are staying in Boston! This is a wonderful place to visit while you Study English in Boston!
