The Boston List: SoWa Market and South End Buttery

April 14, 2011

Its that time of year again. The air is getting warmer, green things are starting to grow our of the ground and quick math tells you that in less than two months you will be forced to become a fully-functioning member of the real world. So what does one do with one’s time? Check some things off my list of course!

Confession: As a PR major I have somewhat of a penchant for list-making. In fact, hanging on the wall in my apartment we have a master list that has all of things we want to do in Boston before we graduate. Aptly named The Boston List, we have slowly been checking things off for four years and now it is crunch time.

So this past Sunday, my roommate Colleen and I decided that it was time for us to venture out of the BU bubble and explore. We decided to go down to the South End and visit SoWa vintage market and the South End Buttery.

Complete with old maps of Boston, antique furniture, costume jewelry and vintage clothing; SoWa vintage market is a charming distraction from the ordinary.

Located at 460 Harrison Street, SoWa market is normally open from May through September. This past weekend, however, there was a sneak preview on Sunday of the season to come. In addition to the vintage market, SoWa also offers a farmer’s market, food trucks and an art market once the full season starts. For more info on vendors and hours visit here.

Next, a quick walk over to Shawmut Ave deposited us here:

The South End Buttery has a bit of a cult following in Boston, and for good reason. The charming bistro/coffee shop not only offers standard brunch fare, but also a delectable assortment of pastries and sweets to thoroughly tempt even the most stringent health nut. According to their website they are “committed to using [as many] organic, all natural, locally raised and grown ingredients as much as possible.” They are also adorably pet-friendly and the owner (a BU Law alum) even have several cupcakes named after his dogs. Tip: try their lizer tarts, they are actually divine.
