“South of Washington Street” – affectionately known as “SoWa” – is best known for its bustling artist studios and weekly farmer’s market, which draws crowds from all over the city – and vendors from all across New England. Food trucks cluster the neighborhood’s charming streets and artisans flaunt their wares at this festive weekly affair. With parks large and small, over two hundred galleries, and eateries galore, SoWa is decidedly, refreshingly hip.
SoWa includes Washington Street, East Berkeley, Albany, and East Canton Streets. Harrison Street is the primary thoroughfare that features galleries, markets and restaurants aplenty.
Most homes in SoWa receive an offer within a month and a half of being on the market. Ten homes are typically listed in any twelve-month period, and the average property sells for just over $1,000 per square foot.
Renowned for its weekly farmers’ market, SoWa prides itself on being Boston’s leading arts destination. More than two hundred galleries and studios fill this distinctive neighborhood’s many warehouse-style buildings, and seasonal festivals attract visitors from all over New England. Eclectic boutiques, charming bakeries, and enticing eateries define the loveable SoWa throughout the year.
