Food Truck Lineup at SoWa Announced for Upcoming Season

More than 35 different trucks will gather in the South End during this year's SoWa season.

The organizers behind the SoWa market have been busy this winter. The 2013 SoWa Open Market will feature its usual open market, vintage market and farmer's market, and this year, will include an expanded lineup of food trucks, featuring more than 35 different food vendors and restaurants on wheels. 

The open market, which will be celebrating its ten year annivesary this year, is open every Sunday from May through October from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with several different locations up and down Harrison Avenue in the South End's SoWa district. The 2013 season will begin on May 5th. 

Vendor Scholarships Offered
New this year to the market is a scholarship program for new and up-and-coming Open Market vendors. 

"Many of you started out at SoWa and had wonderful, sharing neighbors that not only gave you helpful feedback, but also become good friends," the market announced on Facebook. "We'd like to give that same opportunity to up-and-coming makers in the form of a SoWa Open Market scholarship."

The idea is to give those who have been in business for three years or less, and who never had the opportunity to have a booth at SoWa a chance.

The scholarship consists of one free booth per month at the SoWa Open Market for a total of 6 markets (a $600 value). The recipient will also get advice from market mentors. Applications are due by March 10.

SoWa? South of Washington? But doesn't Washington Street run North to South? I mean, the streets bisected by Washington are noted by being either to the East or West: East Concord, West Concord; East Newton, West Newton. Rather non-sensical when you think about it. More appropriate would be something like AhHo: Aging hipsters, Hanging out.

You're fight, Franklin. It's been pointed out before, but nobody cared since it's supposed to be a take-off on SoHO. Just a marketing gimmick. Too late to change now. Everyone knows it as SOWA.

I just hope the City Health Department monitors these trucks. It must be very difficult to maintain hygiene in a truck. No point in having a novelty service if you end up in the bathroom for a few days.
