Focused around the bustling intersection of Dorchester Avenue and Adams Street in the heart of Dorchester, MA, Fields Corner is one of Boston’s largest urban neighborhood business districts. Home to a diverse community of Vietnamese, African-American, Caribbean, Irish and Latino businesses and residents, the area is very lively, with interesting shops and restaurants. Here you can find the largest variety of Asian restaurants, services and goods-including jade jewelry, silk dresses, herbs and Vietnamese groceries-outside of Chinatown. Enjoy a pint at one of the area’s traditional Irish pubs, slurp a delicious bowl of phở at any of the many Vietnamese restaurants and, during the summer, pick up fresh fruits and vegetables at the Fields Corner Farmers’ Market. When the sun goes down, have a few laughs at a trivia night and nibble on contemporary cuisine at a trendy restaurant or have a late-night snack at an area pizza/sub shop.
Fields Corner Main Street (an accredited non-profit with an awesome and hard-working board of volunteer directors) encourages you to buy local! Find in our district frozen yogurt, attorneys, jewelry shops, accountants, discount stores, insurance agencies, travel agencies, tax advisors, real estate brokers, automotive shops and hair stylists.
The district also has: several major banks, a post office, a co-working business lab, a public library branch, a community health center (with pool!), two public parks, a senior center, and a supermarket in our central mall which serves surrounding residential neighborhoods. Check out a schedule of events and activities here! Walk, bike or take the MBTA Ashmont branch of the Red Line to the newly renovated Fields Corner T Station to run your errands, try something new and have a good time! Interested in finding out more?
