Time Out Market Boston's best-in-the-city roster includes something for every situation. When you're hungry and it's boiling out, escaping the sun at the city's best food halls is always a good idea. At Time Out Market Boston there are more than 100 dishes on offer, so knowing what to order can be a tough task, especially if the heat's taking a toll. After you cool off by grabbing drinks—we suggest a local IPA in a frosty glass, or a crisp white wine—it's time to dig into these cooling options, all of which are great any time of year. And once you've recovered and are ready to head back out to the real world, stay close and enjoy the coolest things to do in the Fenway.

At Gelato & Chill, Vincent Turco uses traditional Italian recipes to create small-batch, handmade gelato and sorbet that is bursting with flavor. It doesn't get more refreshing than a scoop of melon sorbet, though if you want to go with a creamy chocolate or hazelnut flavor, we won't judge.

George Howell—inventor of the Frappuccino—and his team know a thing or two about deliciously cool coffee drinks. Speak to the expert baristas to customize a flavorful concoction that'll suit your fancy and cool you off, with or without a kick of caffeine. Or go with an iced tea from the local tea company MEM.

Given all of Time Out Market’s delicious yet calorific treats, visitors looking for a healthful—and cooling—option are well served thanks to the presence of Revolution Health Kitchen. Join the local residents and workers who stop by morning through night to pick up invigorating smoothies—we're partial to the Boom (mango, banana, date, kale, spinach, mint)—and juices like the Go-To Green (kale, spinach, parsley, lemon, ginger, apple) and Lemon Classic (kale, grapefruit, lemon, ginger, apple, celery). For an extra nourishing bite that won't heat you up, try an acai bowl.

If it's hot out and you're here to cross a big name off your culinary bucket list, a good choice is gogo ya. The James Beard Award-winning chef Tim Cushman is part of the team that produces crispy nori sushi tacos. With each delicious bite, you'll get some protein and lots of flavor while keeping it light. Go for the o ya-inspired torched hamachi option, which gets a kick from truffled jalapeno butter.
