Plans continue to shape up for Union Square’s forthcoming Bow Market, which will feature a number of food vendors as well as other retailers (and a brewery). Jaju Pierogi will be setting up shop at the market, as previously reported, and now there will be a macaronerie as well, according to Scout Somerville.
Maca macaronerie owner Tamy Chung currently vends at a variety of farmers markets and pop-ups; does custom orders; and also sells macarons at Cha Shu in Malden, Bambu in Randolph, and Gray’s Daily Grind in Westport. She’s been building up a following thanks in part to her adorable macaron shapes, such as pineapple macarons (the flavor is a blend of banana, pineapple, coconut, and passionfruit), various Pokemon-shaped macarons (such as Eevee), corgis (burnt caramel sea salt), and a wide variety of other characters and animals. Also: MacaCakes.
The flavors themselves are also fun: Chung’s list includes chocolate mint, rose petal, eggnog, Harry Potter-inspired butterbeer, funfetti cheesecake, Thai tea, maple bacon, and loads more.
Chung does it all herself, according to her website; Scout reports that she may end up bringing on an employee or two to help out as Maca grows, but as Chung expands to Bow Market, she certainly won’t be taking a backseat. “My favorite part is to meet the customers and talk about my macarons,” Chung told Scout.
Stay tuned for more details on Bow Market’s forthcoming arrival to Somerville’s Union Square, and in the meantime, find Maca macarons at events throughout the Boston area.
