Haymarket is a Boston tradition with its rows of tightly packed fruit and vegetable vendors hawking and shouting about how fresh their produce is. It's organized chaos with customers who shout right back and push their way through the crowd. And the produce is usually...More

HayMarket is one of the famous kitchen market in Boston.There are lots of street vendors in their designated place to sell their produce there specially in the week end. People also do come here to enjoy their weekend & shopping.

With so many touristy things to do in Boston (some worthwhile, some hokey), this is a genuine Boston place with enough things for a traveler to enjoy, but also a chance to get a feel for Boston. Our favorite -- Red's Best seafood!

It's only open on Friday's and Saturday's, so we went on Friday morning. Very interesting to see all of the vendors selling top quality produce at low prices, and locals coming from all over to purchase.

The place is fun! So many varieties of fruits and vegetables. People screaming their products price and qualities in a very fun way. I love it. The price is very good. I paid 1US$ on a papaya.

Haymarket is and always has been a blast. It is loud and fast paced. The vendors are gruff, but that's part of the charm. The prices and people watching are unbeatable.

Great prices for fresh fruits, vegetables and fish. Close to the Boston Public Market. It's also the area for the main hub for the metro (Haymarket Station).

Very crowded and busy with numerous stands selling fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, etc. I had heard that this is not a Farmer’s Market, i.e, is not fresh produce straight from the field, but instead is left over fruits/vegetables that didn’t sell in the grocery stores...More

Real market feel with exceptional prices. Too bad we were just day tripping in town for the afternoon, this would be a perfect spot to stock up on excellent quality and priced produce.

one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
