I’ve lived in Boston for over six years, and have never visited the SoWa Market. Until last weekend, that is. It was a beautiful day, so I dragged my family out to explore. While the boys feasted on delicious, super chocolatey homemade brownies (sorry, I didn’t get the vendor), I whisked myself through the stalls at record speed, camera in hand. Here’s what I turned up:
Tot tees from Pinecone + Chickadee and re-purposed gift cards from Albertine Press.
Handmade soaps by Urban Kitchen and infused honey from The Herb Lyceum Kitchen.
Monster incense burner and pottery vases by Steve Murphy.
Grain sack pillows from The Textile Trunk.
Macaroons from Klara’s Gourmet Cookies and tea towels by Moth Written Dialogue.
Vintage home furnishings from Studio Twenty Two.
Here are some photos by Rob Knight, a Boston-based photographer, who’s also a friend. (His five-year-old son Harry followed us around a garden center in out on the Cape last summer until we agreed to organize a play date between him and my six-year-old. We’re so glad!) Rob, who recently had a solo show, “My Boat is so Small,” at Gallery Kayafas in the South End. shoots a lot of interiors and quirky still lives. These are some of my favorite works:
