This summer, every Wednesday, FPAC has a booth to showcase local artists and to gain awareness of the Fort Point artist community that's located right over the channel.
Yesterday I displayed my work , alongside the elegant and meticulously designed sterling silver jewelry of Jennifer Chin.

It was a rainy day, but the vibe was great. Located in the heart of one of Boston's busiest areas, there was plenty of foot traffic and people watching despite the unfavorable weather.
There was a HOOD street team giving away free fat-free chocolate milk, a ceramicist(whose name I never got, sorry), fresh vegetables and fruit vendors and even a vendor selling assorted fresh baked bread from "When Pigs Fly". All in all, I'm excited to participate in this event again. I encourage all to come out and support this unique market and your local artists.

They are located just across from South Station at Dewey Square on the new Green-way.
You can also shop the farmer's market Mondays and Thursdays for produce, baked goods, and plants!
The Fort Point Arts Community (FPAC) will have a booth set up each Wednesday at the Boston Public Market at Dewey Square all summer and leading up to October’s Open Studios. FPAC is delighted to continue our partnership with the Boston Public Market, and supports their goal of a permanent, year round indoor market for Boston.
Fort Point Art Community artists will take turns exhibiting and selling their artwork as well as giving information about FPAC and our Open Studios programming. Artists will take the booth in teams of two. Our mission: provide an opportunity for increased visibility and an opportunity for sales
