There’s so much we love about summer. The fresh air, soaking up sun on the beach and the Cape House. Fresh food locally-sourced from the market’s near where we live is our favorite addition to summers in the city. To ensure you get the best fruits and vegetables New England has to offer, we’ve rounded up our favorite Farmers’ Markets near our studios.
SOWA – The South End Open Market is a Boston staple. Open on Sundays from Memorial Day through September, the SOWA market has everything you need to square off your weekly shopping experience: a traditional farmer’s market packed with stalls from local farmers, a food truck area so you can snack while you shop, and a local artisan’s area (perfect for grabbing that last-minute gift).
Copley Square Farmer’s Market – Located right in the square, the Copley Square Farmer’s Market is open every Tuesday and Friday from May through November. Stop here for fresh fruits and vegetables, homegrown flowers and fresh baked bread. While you’re in the neighborhood, stop by Jugos at Back Bay Station for a freshly-squeezed green juice.
Boston Public Market – The newest farmer’s market to hit the city is located at 100 Hanover Street, directly next to the Haymarket MBTA stop. The Boston Public Market hosts local vendors seven days a week from 8am-8pm. We can’t get enough of the home-grown honey and gluten free pastries. Needing some comfort food? The pastrami sandwiches are big enough to share, and the fresh baked pretzels are the ultimate snack. The market also has a beer and wine stall, sourced all from New England wineries and breweries.
Wellesley Farmer’s Market – There’s a lot of new openings in Wellesley. And we have it on good word the Wellesley Farmer’s Market is opening right after Labor Day. In the meantime, check out the Natick Farmer’s Market, located just down the road. The Natick Farmer’s Market is located in Natick Common and open year round every Saturday from 9am-1pm. The mission of the market is to offer locally grown foods and handmade crafts to the community. On many occasions, you’ll be serenaded by local bands. Grab a bike in one of our morning classes and then stop by the market for fresh produce before hitting the beach this summer.
Falmouth Farmers’ Market – Located in Marine Park on Scranton Avenue, the Falmouth Farmers’ Market is open every Thursday afternoon in the summer. It features fresh fish, vegetables and fruits from farms in Falmouth and around Buzzards Bay. If you’re not in need of a full shop, grab some fruit snacks and catch a ferry to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket for the day
Mashpee Commons Farmers’ Market – Want to know what the perfect day looks like? Let us build the itinerary for you. It starts with a Sunday spin at our Cape House studio, followed by a trip to the Mashpee Commons Farmers’ Market. Located at the corner of Market and Fountain streets, the market is open every Sunday from 12pm-4pm, so you can stop by after your spin class and pick up all your fresh goodies before you head home for the start of the week. It’s the ideal Sunday.
