We really enjoyed this market and came here most days for Bagels. Lots of unique products, delectable snacks, wine tasting and beer sampling. We did not enjoy our Lobster Roll from here.

We have been going to the market for decades, however have not gone recently until this weekend for quite a few years. It did not disappoint. The selection was better than ever. Prices remain good. Fun atmosphere. Something not to be missed.

Lots of vendors, lots of choices. They don't care for " squeezing" the products. Some vendors fresher than others, prices comparable

Great produce for cheap. Make sure you carefully inspect everything you buy, since the produce is often towards the end of its life. You can find fantastic deals on produce including berries, herbs, lemons / limes, and all sorts of veggies. Come later on Friday...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
