2014 Best Gourmet Market, North

Becky’s Gourmet

Fairly new on the North Shore scene, but hardly a secret, Becky Convincer’s charming market is a veritable cornucopia of gloriously fresh produce, organic specialty items, and mouthwatering prepared foods. The fluffy blueberry muffins and artisanal sandwiches are perennial favorites, but the shop also dishes out all manner of comfort-food delights (shepherd’s pie, chicken Marsala, picnic chicken) to harried locals on the hunt for dinner.
