I was so happy to check out Jim’s Market in Medford last weekend, home of the infamous “B-Boy” breakfast sandwich, and a family-owned shop that’s been in business for over 40 years.
Growing up in the suburbs north of Boston, Jim’s Market was a popular weekend breakfast spot among many of my friends, but I’d actually never tried a “B-Boy” before — and for context, they are breakfast sandwiches on sub rolls — you can get them with ham, bacon, or sausage, and choose whether or not you’d like to add hash browns to it. Many choose to add barbecue sauce to their sandwiches as well (apparently it’s insanely popular!).
They even have one variation of the B-Boy sandwich called the “Clogger” made with bacon, ham, and sausage.
I was so curious how about how the name “B-Boy” came about, and I learned that the original owner and friends who used to hang out eating breakfast sandwiches at Jim’s Market were dubbed the “Breakfast Boys” and their sandwiches were soon abbreviated to “B-Boys.”
And a thanks to the friendly employees at Jim’s Market who went out in 10 degree temperatures to help me get these B-Boy shots!
Check out Jim’s Market at 463 Fulton Street in Medford.
