Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins

Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins

Remember when department stores were filled with wonders—like walking through the front doors into the perfume department, like riding escalators past floors full of color, like knowing that somewhere in that vast wonderland, there was a real restaurant? Jordan Marsh in downtown Boston was Boston’s first department store, 14 floors of merchandise, and famous for its blueberry muffins. The beautiful old store is long gone to the wrecker’s ball—but those muffins linger on.
