Warehouse Weekends

We know you value local. 

We know you make it a point to shop at independent businesses, dine at local restaurants, attend neighborhood events, support community organizations, and champion area artists.

That’s why we’re such good friends.

That’s also why you’re invited to join us this fall for Harvard Book Store’s Warehouse Weekends where local is the name of the game.  We’ve asked dozens of our favorite community cohorts to help us celebrate our collective ind(ie)pendence with bargain books, free samples, contests, workshops, and more!

From 10:00 A.M.-6:00 P.M.  today, our 6500 sq. ft. warehouse in Somerville will feature some of our favorite purveyors of fine local food, feeding your body while Harvard Book Store feeds your mind.  And did we mention we have 25,000 used, rare and remainder books available for your browsing pleasure?  And if that weren't enough of an incentive, all used and remainder cookbooks books are 15% all weekend long!


Latin Spoon - It's Latin cuisine done right and with fresh, local ingredients. Buen Provecho!
MEM Tea Imports - A tea lovers paradise, MEM Tea Imports 
specializes in sourcing, blending, and distributing high quality loose leaf teas and tea-ware - and now you can try before you buy!
Q's Nuts
 - A Somerville favorite, this artisan nut company will have you giving in to tempation once you try their line of sweet, savory and exotic flavors.
Scoopsies Ice Cream - Taking Brookline by storm (and next, the world), Chloe and Sarah are mixing up 100 different ice cream flavors in 365 days. You get to sample 5 today.
Something Gud
 Like your favorite CSAs and Farmers' Markets in one place, Something Gud delivers the best locally sourced food directly to your door, each week. Check 'em out!
Taza Chocolate - Featuring stone ground chocolate in flavors ranging from classic (Cacao Puro) to exotic (Chipotle Chili), Taza's based right here in Somerville, so you know the chocolate you're sampling today is as fresh as it gets!

Our Warehouse is located at 14 Park St. in Somerville, between Somerville Ave. and Beacon St., just outside of Union Square. The closest T stop is Porter Square, on the Red Line, and bus lines #83 and #87 have stops on Somerville Ave. near Park St.

And unlike at most parties… friends of friends are definitely encouraged to bring friends! See you there!
