One of the bigger events in Boston this weekend is the opening of the SOWA Open Market in the South End.
It's a little bit farmers market, a little bit flea market, craft show and fine arts fair. But there's nothing little about it. This year is SOWA Open Market's biggest opener yet with 140 indie designers, crafters, artists, musicians, farmers, food trucks and much more, according to the people who run it. The Market opens this Sunday, May 6 in a huge space at 460 Harrison Avenue in Boston's South End. And it will be open every Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until Oct. 28. There are four distinct sections to the lively marketplace: a farmers market area; an area where jewelry-makers and other craftsmen sell their wares; an indoor vintage market where antiques share space with kitschy items from the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s; and a building …
Five things you need to know today, May 4.
1) Take the T this weekend: Between the SoWa Open Market and Art Walk, the South End Little League Parade, Walk for Hunger at the Common and some construction detours on Stuart Street, getting around will be tough. They’re all great events (well, except for the construction), so it’s worth the temporary hassle. 2) The mud’s flying in the senate race: It’s been a rough week for both Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown. Each is dealing with allegations of hypocrisy while flinging the charge at the other. South Enders have been talking about it here. Join the conversation! 3) Art dash preview: The annual Laconia Gallery 150 x 150 art dash is coming. The gallery puts up 150 works of art for $150 apiece. Patrons must race into the gallery and grab…

Five things you need to know today, April 27.
1) SoWa Art Walk: The SoWa open market isn’t the only big event on May 6. Take some time to appreciate and support local artists with the SoWa Art Walk. You can meet the artists, purchase their wares and enjoy their pieces in galleries and cafes across the neighborhood. 2) In case you missed it: Howard Chadwick Antiques is closing after 34 years on Beacon Hill. The South Ender-owned business is closing in part because of roadwork in front of the store, which depressed walk-in business. You still have time to support the shop; It’s open every day until Monday. 3) Calling all South End artists: Dana Farber wants your submissions for its 2012 holiday collection. The winning designs will be used on Dana Farber products to help raise money for…
