Union Square is the place for those who appreciate the U.S. as a melting pot. It offers markets run by proprietors from India, Korea, Brazil, Pakistan, Argentina and Bangladesh. They serve customers from those countries as well as Haiti, Nepal, Central America, China and Japan. Restaurants and pubs reflect the same diversity: Italian, Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Irish—with local favorite Dunkin’ Donuts, too. There’s also a farmer’s market in season. Many artists are drawn to this area, and they are supported by a local arts council. Union Square is just 1/2 mile from Inman Square and 2 miles from Harvard, Davis and Sullivan Squares, and downtown Boston.
