Fresh Fare & Community at the East Boston Farmers MarketAug 26, 2019 Blog Neoscape
From 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm every Wednesday from July through October 16th, East Boston’s Central Square Park transforms into a vibrant and diverse open-air food market. The East Boston Farmers Market has become a staple of the local community and an attraction for those living outside it. Fortunate residents of the Boston luxury condominiums at The Mark will find themselves fully immersed in the community and only steps from the market itself. Shopping outside, with the music of local musicians swirling in the air above you while you stroll through a wealth of remarkably fresh fare is a far superior experience than sifting through produce at the grocery store.
What separates this farmer’s market from most others are the affordable prices and the wide array of foods that are offered. The neighborhood embraces its diverse community, and that diversity is reflected in the spices, peppers, vegetables, condiments, greens, herbs, and fruits they sell.
Everything sold here is grown or sourced locally. Farmer Dave’s has incredible preserves and baked goods, Meadowbrook Orchards does as well. Asia Farm has a wide assortment of traditionally Asian fare that is not always easy to find in the area. There’s Valicenti Pasta that has, as you may have guessed, a wide selection of pasta and sauces, and there’s Mr.Tamole, which is known throughout the city for their spectacular Mexican tamales. If you’re in the market for a rare cheese, there’s Seacoast Cheese Maven, and if you want to kick things up a few degrees, TC Market has a large collection of hot sauces. You could also grab some unique and inventive sauerkraut at Lost Art Cultured Foods or pick up some Mexican street corn at Veronica Robles Cultural Center.
Some of the vendors participate weekly, and others are present on a biweekly or monthly basis, but every vendor at the market takes freshness very seriously. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be selected. It’s that simple. And with freshness comes flavor. Whether you’re looking for something specific, or just searching for inspiration, the East Boston Farmers Market has you covered. And even if you’re not shopping for food, the market is a wonderful place to walk through. Grab a snack; listen to some music; meet your neighbors. The market, due to its lively and colorful atmosphere, has become as much of a meeting place as it is a shopping destination. East Boston is a positively beautiful community, and that beauty is fully represented each and every Wednesday at Central Square Park.
