About the new Nibble book
This beautiful 132-page color book explores how food tells a story about Union Square, Somerville. We think the square is a very special neighborhood right now; it is diverse, artsy, yet has enough grit to keep things interesting. This is illustrated through the food landscape, with its beautiful, motley mix of pizza joints, mom-and-pop markets, lively pubs, farmers’ markets, posh new restaurants and brimming global flavor. This book aims to capture this dynamic—and delicious—sense of place.
The Nibble book costs $20; all proceeds support the public programs of the Somerville Arts Council.
Pick up your book at either our office or these fine store below.

—Feature articles about: the locavore scene; Latino-American restaurant owners and food tourism; the many wonders of Market Basket; and local wine makers
—Interviews with artists who use oreos and spices as media
