Sowa Markets: Boston's Most Unique Shopping Experience

Our bed and breakfast located in Boston's South End has been designed with classic and modern components much like the neighborhood itself. The property is littered with antiques along side contemporary pieces of art and furniture to create a unique setting in which to relax and unwind. Another example of classic South End style is the SoWa Markets located on Harrison Avenue.

SoWa Sundays operate all year round, rain or shine with different themes for different seasons. In the winter, head on over for the Vintage Market. You will find old records, fashion, house wares and artwork from the last 100 years all compiled in a warehouse open rain or shine. Pick up some of your favorite LP's, an armoire from the 50's and photographs from the 70's. If vintage isn't your style, the SoWa Open Market might be for you. From May to October, the parking lot in front of the SoWa space turns into tent city! Local artists, students and food trucks all convene together outside to sell their passions and meet new people. Nosh on some of Clover's rosemary French fries while you peruse through the seemingly endless array of unique art and knick-knacks and finish the day off with a delicious frozen hoagie or nutella crepe from ParisCreperie.

The whole SoWa arts district is definitely worth visiting while in Boston. It is only a 10 minute walk from our door. You will absolutely find something that speaks to you and will have a story all its own to add to yours. After spending the day walking around and enjoying the gorgeous spring time weather, head back to your favorite boutique bed and breakfast for afternoon tea and a soak in our roof top hot tub!
