We first got bitten by the antique market bug while living in San Francisco, especially after visiting Alameda Antique market and scoring some good home decor stuff. Since then, we have been searching for antique market anywhere we go.
SoWa (South of Washington) of Boston proves itself again as the hub of artistic creation. After coming for the First Friday Open Studios, we are back to check out their SoWa Sunday market. This market includes 3 parts – outdoor artisan stands & food trucks, indoor vintage market, and farmer’s market.
As we approached the lot, the sight of white tents and small businesses showing their ware got me excited.
There were lots of cute accessories, baby clothing, and photography products. Look, there’s even a woman spinning yarn here!
If you get too hot under the sun, take a look of the indoor vintage market.
Ha, I would’ve missed this fabulous mannequin if I didn’t step inside! I wonder who is the lucky person that gets to take her home.
Of course, I had to check out some accessories. Vintage markets are such great places to find unique jewelry that’s different from your H&M or Forever21 stores.
After all this browsing and walking, it’s time to refuel. Don’t worry, there are also food trucks on premise. A lot of food trucks have been around Boston, since the city mayor started this initiative that made starting a food truck so much easier.
After much consideration, I decided to go with Grilled Cheese Nation. We got The Boston Common – grafton vermont cheddar iggy’s organic pain de mie bread.
Verdict: well, it was a delicious sandwich for $6. However, they could be better by increasing cheese serving. When you have tomatoes and bacon with the GC, they need to add more cheese to make sure it shines through!
We enjoyed our lunch in the company of this lovely young group of saxophone players.
Now the basic info.
