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.

    There's actually a burrito cart on Summer Street, at the other end of Macy's.

    Just didn't want you to forget the neat (indoor) artist markets in Downtown Crossing like the one at 34 Bromfield Street, Artists Crossing . They are having a meet the new artists on December 3rd during the lunch time and a big anniversary party/sale on December 4th starting at 5 pm.

    As a resident of Downtown Crossing, I actually spoke to the real estate guy for Trader Joe's. He said that he thought that people in all order their groceries online, and didn't think the area warranted a grocery store!(I guess that's why there are 3 CVSs in DTC, you know, because everyone orders their stuff from!)
    He thought the area was too wealthy for people to go to the grocery store! I mentioned that I live there, am not wealthy, and currently walk a mile to the TJs on Boylston (often to find them sold out of things).

    I told him there were more than
    6,000 residents in DTC, not including the students (and the nearby areas of Chinatown, the North End, and Beacon Hill that would all use it), and that people in the financial districts would shop there before going home from work.

    I agree with you that there should be a TJs there! Just let the real estate peeps at TJs know (they have a corporate office in Needham!).
