Boston Public Market
Where we've featured it
We know we can’t stop you from going to Quincy Market, so knock yourself out - take a selfie in front of the Sam Adams statue, buy a Bahstan Is Wicked Pissah shirt, and trip over some cobblestones in front of a crowd of bucket drummers. But instead of going to the Cheers-themed bar to eat, head to the significantly less-touristy Boston Public Market, which houses exclusively local food stalls. For breakfast, grab some brioche donuts from Union Square Donuts or a smoked fish taco from Boston Smoked Fish Co, and then get Boston’s 10th best lobster roll from Red’s Best for lunch
Yes, it’s really crowded between 11:30-1. But if you’ve been avoiding the Boston Public Market because you can only stand in line and stare at your phone for so long, know that it’s really crowded because it’s really good. From crepes to smoked fish tacos and shakshuka, there is something for everyone here. Hell, you can even buy some fresh produce and make yourself a salad if you want, though we’d much prefer the people at Inna’s Kitchen make us a skakalatke - a latke topped with egg, tomato sauce, and avocado labne that’s probably technically a breakfast food, but that we’d gladly eat for lunch, dinner, or at 3 in the afternoon just because.
