Fortunately, Time Out Market is exceptionally child-friendly, with lots of open communal seating; chances are you can set up shop, have plenty of room for your crew, and if the kids make a bit of a mess there are no servers or fine-dining patrons to worry about. If you're dining with a big group, check out our guide to the best dishes for sharing at Time Out Market, and if you're looking to thrill your sweet tooth, check out our list of the best sweet bites at Time Out Market.

Kid-friendly bites at Time Out Market Boston

  • Fenway/Kenmore

Lots of local boys and girls grow up chomping on their parents' weekend bagels. At Mamaleh’s, the little ones in your life can snack on a hand-rolled bagel with cream cheese, a PB&J or grilled cheese on challah, or savory, easy-to-eat hot dog. More adventurous eaters should have no problem tackling a gooey Reuben sandwich.

Michael Schlow’s first-ever pizzeria specializes in Roman-style pies. The pizzas come out of a special wood-burning oven chewy and airy, with a charred, crispy crust. Parents can enjoy a wild mushroom pie with truffle and grated Parm while the kiddos devour the classic Margarita option (imported San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil).

For a healthful, colorful and — most importantly — tasty treat, encourage the kids to try a freshly-made smoothie such as the Berry Blue (blueberry, banana, strawberry, spinach, date) or the appropriately-named Easy (banana, date, GF oats, cacao, cinnamon). Rare is the child that doesn't enjoy RHK's smooth, sweet acai bowls, and house-made soups are also easy to eat for those with developing teeth.

At Gelato & Chill, Vincent Turco uses traditional Italian recipes to create small-batch, handmade gelato and sorbet made from local, organic and additive-free ingredients. Once kids try a bite, they'll never look at tubs of store-bought ice cream the same way again.

Hummus might just be the most kid-friendly treat to explode across the Hub this century. Fortunately, anoush’ella (an Armenian expression of love, meaning “may it be sweet”) churns out exceptional hummus, as well as smooth labne, grilled halloumi, baked chickpea fritters and lots of other kid-friendly noshes.
