Boston's South End Market

Boston's South End Market

Fresh from Peru, Randall and Amanda Richards will take fairtrade items they’ve purchased to Boston’s South End Market (SOWA). Proceeds from all items sold goes to not only to help defray Mountain Spirit Institute’s liability insurance and other operating costs, but to the makers of the items as well. On sale will be traditional weavings, bags, hats and other items from the Cusco and Machu Picchu area, and other parts of Peru, as well as zamponas, flutes and CD’s from the Cusco band Chimu Inka. The band visited New England in 2008, performing and teaching about Peruvian culture and music. MSI runs programs to Peru, New Zealand, India and the USA.

The New York Times says about SOWA market:
“This is Boston’s version of London’s Portobello market, with vintage clothes sellers and young fashion and jewelry designers rubbing elbows with artists and cheese makers and antiques dealers. What’s exciting about this market is that it changes each week. So, some Sundays you’ll discover a local artist who is there only that day. Everyone sells from tables beneath white tents.”

If you’d like to see some wonderful handmade items from the Andes, or learn more about our Mountain Spirit Institute programs stop by our tent this Saturday or Sunday at: 540 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA
