Our Farmers Markets: Fresh Eating Every Day of the Week
Life at Waterside Place means farm-fresh produce abounds — from the farmers markets that surround us to Adam’s popup produce right in the lobby. We even have green-thumbed residents curating urban gardens up on the roof deck.
Here’s the where and when of our local farmers markets:
• Boston Public Market: July 30 marked the grand opening of Boston’s much-anticipated year-round market at 100 Hanover St. More than 37 vendors are gearing up to keep you eating well, and The Kitchen will offer food-related lectures, classes and community events to inspire you. Wednesday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
• Boston Public Market on The Greenway: Newly relocated from its former space near City Hall, this expansive market in front of 136 Blackstone is open from late May to mid-November. Sample the original sweet roast from Q’s Nuts or a birthday cake donut from Union Square. Sundays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
• Dewey Square Farmers Market: Situated just across from South Station, this hub of good eats features many our favorite vendors. Don’t feel like grilling? Pick up freshly made pasta, a loaf of just-baked bread, and something sweet and light for dessert. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
• Adam’s Pop-up Produce: Unless you’re brand-new to Waterside Place, you’ve already taken note of Adam’s beaming smile in the lobby. Follow him on Facebook for previews of his locally sourced goodies, and drop by for glorious beets, asparagus and a chat. Wednesdays, 4 to 9 p.m.
The offerings at our local markets go well beyond produce. Count on them for tasty jams, artisan cheeses and even fresh-cut flowers. But we say nothing tastes more like summer than a perfectly ripe tomato. That makes August an especially good time to make friends with Waterside’s rooftop gardeners.
