Upcoming Union Square International Market Tours! - Jul 12 - Sep 13, 2014

As part of our ArtsUnion project, the Somerville Arts Council gives tours of Union Square international food markets. Join us and learn where to find ingredients like Nepalese timur (a fragrant spice used in pickles), squid ink pasta and Haitian akasan (a cornmeal drink). Beyond discovering the culinary exotica available in Union Square, we’ll learn about the history of these stores and how their clientele represents the cultural community of Somerville. Each tour visits three markets and we’ll point out others along the way. Featured markets include: Casa de Carne, Well Foods Plus Halal Market, La Internacional, Little India, New Bombay Market, Pao de Acucar & Brazilian Buffet and the Reliable Market. Without leaving Union Square, we’ll visit Brazil, Korea, India, Nepal, Guatemala and Haiti!
