Sure, the food in this part of town is having a moment. But locals have enjoyed the many Armenian markets here for years.
Thanks to Wikipedia, I now know two facts about Watertown.
Fact 1: It’s a city that chooses redundancy over incongruity, preferring to be formally addressed as The Town of Watertown.
Fact 2: After Los Angeles and Fresno, Watertown has the third largest Armenian population in the country. As such, the city supports three Armenian markets all sharing the same block and a half of Mount Auburn Street. (There’s a fourth, Eastern Lamejun Bakers on nearby Belmont Street, which I unfortunately couldn’t visit.)
