Starting this Sunday, swarms of food trucks will descend upon the South End to cater to hordes of hungry people. The South End Open Market debuts May 1 at its new location, 375 Harrison Ave. (Ink Block), with hundreds of assorted vendors — food, art, and more — slated to appear.
The owner of New England Open Markets, Chris Masci, made the decision to relocate the market from its previous home at SoWa, just down the street, following a dispute at that location, as The Boston Globe reported. The South End Open Market is gearing up for a massive opening day at its new home, kicking off the season, which will run on Sundays through the end of October.
Any peckish open-air shoppers will have a choice of around 15 food trucks, as well as 60 food and farm vendors, as they stroll through the wares of 140 indie designers and artists, per the event details on the South End Open Market's Facebook page.
