I have to hand it to the folks at the BRA and the Boston Public Market. They're trying really hard to make this Downtown Crossing revitalization happen despite the big gaping hole that the developers left where Filene's once stood. Coming up in a few days is the first annual Downtown Crossing Holiday Market.
The Holiday Market starts on November 28th and will run through December 24th.
The first Annual Downtown Crossing Holiday Market will have everything you need for everyone on your list. Find unique and local handcrafted jewelry, holiday ornaments, oil paintings, pet items, photography, fresh baked breads, wearables, local cider for mulling, cheeses and dessert sauces, art for the walls, chairs to sit in, ceramics, locally grown flowers and hand blown vases to put them in.
Not that anyone asked me, but I'd love to see a Trader Joe's move into that old Barnes and Nobles space that's been vacant for so long. Walking to that Whole Foods on Cambridge Street is a huge pain in the butt. And since I'm fantasizing, can we have more variety in our food carts other than just hot dogs and sausages? I'd like chicken and rice carts like they have in NYC.
