March is Women’s History Month, a month dedicated to recognizing the impressive accomplishments of women in the past, present, and future. Boston wouldn’t be what it is today without our amazing women-owned businesses. Supporting our favorite local ladies is one of the best ways to say thanks to the women in your life—and pick up some delicious food, drinks, and gifts while you're at it!

We asked for your favorite women-owned businesses on our Instagram, and you answered. Here’s what we learned.
