Local Instagram Accounts to Follow

2019 promises to be another busy year in Watertown, with lots to keep tabs on. If you’re active on social media like most of us, no doubt you’re checking Instagram a fair amount. Here are some of our go-to accounts for staying on top of all the latest in Watertown:


  • Branch Line continues to kill it on Instagram, with their Insta stories especially. Follow them for the latest on menu specials, latest wine and beer pours, and fun events at their space.
  • Newcomer CountryMile has been super active chronicling their restaurant build-out; we’re loving their feed for getting to know their eclectic food and booze selection. @countrymilefood
  • Local specialty grocer Russo’s offers helpful tutorial videos on everything from choosing the right produce to how to cut open a pomegranate (right? who knew). Follow them at @russosproduce
