Eat, Drink, Shop, Laugh: Somerville's Bow Market Ties it All Together
Edible Boston Spring 2019

One of the first food shops at Bow Market, Maca opened in June 2018. Owner Tamy Chung had been selling her inventively flavored and creatively decorated macarons at farmers markets, breweries and special events around town for the previous two years. In the food business “since the day I was born,” Chung grew up in New Hampshire, where her parents own a restaurant; she earned degrees in accounting and is self-taught in the pastry arts. She enjoys making macarons because, “I can have fun with colors and flavors. I try to draw people away from pistachio and salted caramel,” she says. Many of Chung’s macarons are decidedly of their place, made with Taza chocolate, Jam Sessions jam and, even closer to her new home, Remnant Brewing beer and Gracie’s ice cream.

Save room for dessert so that you can visit this specialty bakery that has dedicated itself to perfecting the art of macarons (not macaroons, a different dessert). When you enter Maca you’ll notice the adorable interior, and then the colorful of display treats, all made in small batches daily, ensuring their ultimate freshness.

Owner Tamy Chung says she was drawn to creating the treat—known to be finicky—because they are highly customizable. Now, Chung has masterfully created over 100 flavors, all inspired by her global travels, and rotates 12 new flavors daily so patrons are encouraged to come in often, and with an open mind to try something new. We enjoyed the Cardamom French Toast, Blueberry Basic Cheesecake, Fruity Pebbles, Earl Grey, Bacon Whiskey, and Chung’s favorite, Lavender Honey. And you bet we'll be back soon to check out some new flavors.
