    Greenway Open Market

    We love artisanal vendors and we love open air markets so when we first learned about the Greenway Open Market, the open air crafts and art market, we knew we had to check it out.  Tucked amongst the tree lined promenades of the Wharf District Parks and the Rose Kennedy Greenway the market carries a curated selection of arts and crafts from local artists.  The open air market takes place each  Saturday from  11-6pm.  In September and October the market is open from 11 am – 5pm.
