Best of Boston

2022 Best Outdoor Shopping Complex

Bow Market

Forget generic mall brands and big-box stores: This small-but-mighty Somerville standout continues to win us over with its roster of indie darlings, wrapped around an ever-buzzing courtyard with retailers like Crane & Turtle and the newly expanded Vinyl Index anchoring the lot. Plus, Bow Market’s revolving door of pop-ups and shop-hosted events means there’s always something new to check out (when you’re not kicking back at Remnant Brewing or one of the complex’s other hangouts).
