Farm-Fresh Eating: A Market for Every Day of the Week

How blissful it is, this time of year, to be surrounded by farmers markets. According to the North End Regional Review, “In Boston alone, farmers markets have more than doubled in the past 10 years, and Massachusetts ranks third in the nation in number of farmers markets per person.”

Ah, life at the Kensington. We get the best in urban living and healthy food straight from the local farms. In the summer months, you’ll find at least one open market every day of the week, offering everything from seasonal greens and flowers to organic local wine and cheese.

Keep this list bookmarked and turn your regular grocery shopping routine into a market extravaganza. Or just reference it when you want to pick up a sandwich and fresh-squeezed lemonade and head to over to the Common for a fresh, flavorful lunch.

Summer farmers markets near the Kensington:

Copley Square
Tuesdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Greenway at Blackstone Street
Mondays and Wednesdays, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Dewey Square across from South Station
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Prudential on Boylston Street Plaza
Thursdays, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

We’re especially looking forward to the Greenway neighborhood’s planned indoor Boston Public Market, which will open at 136 Blackstone St. near Haymarket. That space will feature a huge number of permanent vendors — year round. In the meantime, we plan to stay well-fed by taking full advantage of these many other options.
