Boston, MA Edition: Boston Public Market

Boston Public MarketMy newfound love for public markets in the past year or two just keeps growing. The Boston Public Market is a bustling, community-centered market where you can purchase everything from craft beer to handcrafted chocolates.

They have these artisan s'mores - coconut, raspberry, peanut butter, caramel. Good god. They have flavored marshmallows - apple cider, pumpkin spice, anything you can think of.

Boston Public MarketI had a hard time deciding between this fancy s'more or chocolate caramels, but, let's be honest, I can't pass up salted caramels if I tried. And thank god I didn't, because these were SO GOOD. SO GOOD.
