Discuss: What is Your Favorite Business in Jamaica Plain?

Jamaica Plain is known for its independent businesses — bakeries, pizza places, restaurants, gift shops and more. Having all these independent businesses is one thing that people love about JP. And most people don’t have just one favorite business, but that’s what we’re asking you to name.

Think about it this way — if you could get a gift certificate to one business, which business would that be?

At the Wake Up the Earth Festival, Jamaica Plain News asked people to submit answers for what their favorite business is in Jamaica Plain and below are the answers. These are just some of the answers people wrote down. What do you think? What is your favorite business in Jamaica Plain? There are no wrong answers. There’s kind of no right answers, too.
