Could it be? Instead of the mall otherwise known as Faneuil Hall or the cut-rate supermarket otherwise known as Haymarket (not that I don’t love going there—it just has very few local products), is downtown Boston going to get a year-round market full of local produce, vendors, and cuisine? The Boston Globe thinks so.
I’ve been to the Reading Market in Philadelphia, which is a lovely combination of food stands, which range from Middle Eastern and Indian fare to delis and ice cream, local produce stalls, and cookbook sellers. I hope Boston can bring in the same vibrant, local mix. Soon. I want some heirloom tomato chutney.
