Buy Local…Eat Fresh at the SoWa Market

9 May

I first heard of the SoWa market from Bon Me extraordinaire, Patrick Lynch, who sets up shop with his Banh Mi food truck  there every weekend.

I decided to check it out and I was thrilled to find a farmer’s market in Boston that sells high quality, low-cost, and locally grown produce. Aside from the delicious fresh fruits and veggies there’s also local vendors that sell everything from clothing to home made jam. If you haven’t been yet, check it out this Sunday.

The market operates May 1, 2011 through October 30, 2011. It’s open every Sunday from 10AM-4PM.

Bon Me exploded on to the food truck seen after winning Boston’s first Food Truck Challenge during the winter of 2010-2011. I stopped by City Hall Plaza on a sunny Friday afternoon last week and the line for this truck was absurd.¬† Bon Me serves up toasty Banh Mi sandwiches on a baguette as well as other traditional Vietnamese fare.

Check out my coverage of this new and delicious food truck below. (I dare you not to salivate)
