Its central location in the heart of Back Bay and the breadth of goods—everything from tomatoes to apples, breads to cheeses, and honey to pickles—makes this Back Bay market a go-to. Locals and tourists browse and buy; notable chefs escape their kitchens, looking for fresh ingredients and inspiration. Many offer samples of jams or cakes, making it fun to taste and stock up the pantry with favorites. There are around 30 stands, including fabulous breads from Cambridge bakery Iggy’s (which supplies some of the city’s best restaurants), and Pioneer Valley-based MycoTerra Farms’ fabulous fungi, which includes native New England Lion’s Mane mushrooms in its collection.
