Sundays might warrant laziness but resist the urge to flip your pillow to the cooler side and drift off into the late-afternoon. During the summer months, the South End hosts the wonderful SoWa Open Market. SoWa Sundays will invigorate your senses and leave a lasting impression that will have you planning a return visit on the following Sunday.
Between brick walls and bathed in sunlight is an eclectic collection of antique items waiting for that special owner to admire them as if they were new. From furniture to rotary telephones, lamps to Japanese paintings, and teacup sets to suits of armor, the SoWa Vintage Market has a bit of everything to fulfill your sentiment.
The Open Market is outdoors, and under the 10-by-10 feet tents you’ll discover a multitudinous array of handmade gifts and the people that made them. It’s an amazing shopping experience that trumps any you’d have in a mall. I thought I was going to be a responsible and detached journalist with a story being my only objective, but I couldn’t resist Liz Ryan’s incredibly thoughtful and one-of-a-kind jewelry. Check out her online Esty store!
It takes a lot of concentration browsing the SoWa Market, you don’t want to miss a thing, but luckily there are food and produce vendors that offer nourishment and refreshment. Sip on iced lemonade while picking out fresh herbs or baked loaves of bread, or indulge in a scrumptious brownie as you take a third look around SoWa. Be sure to check out the SoWa Food & Produce Market so you can take a piece of SoWa home and relish in its merriment!
