Now in it’s 13th year, the New England Open Markets serves over 1,000 small businesses each season, providing them with a venue for their talents and wares, and for the public, a unique shopping experience. Buyers meet the makers, the growers, the chefs, and learn a bit about the goods they are purchasing, where they originated, and how they were created. The vendors themselves, from all over New England and beyond, enjoy a supportive community of like-minded craftspeople, artisans and designers. The authenticity that can be found in the handmade and the independent give a refreshing choice to those in search of the individual. The mission of New England Open Markets is to support that movement.
Boosting the Local Economy
The South End Open Market adds a whole new dimension to people’s enjoyment of the area, making for a celebratory atmosphere once a week and generating robust foot traffic for local bricks-and-mortar retailers, which they would not have seen otherwise. In short, the South End Open Market was an integral part of the revitalization efforts of the now popular South End district.
