Haymarket Boston Tours and Activities
Historic records show that vendors have been gathering in Boston's Haymarket space to peddle fresh foods since before 1830. Today, the historic market offers some of the best, freshest and often cheapest groceries anywhere in downtown Boston.
The list of available foods is, of course, seasonal and ever-changing. Vendors sell not just fruits and vegetables, but also a variety of other wares, including fresh fish, cheeses, Halal meats, Caribbean and Asian foods, spices and more. Even for those who aren't planning to buy, it’s a great destination for people-watching and getting a true feel for the city. Located a stone’s throw from Faneuil Hall, Haymarket Boston sits in the heart of downtown, surrounded by historic sights, restaurants and attractions, including the famous North End.
Travelers will appreciate that Haymarket is not well-known as a tourist attraction. It’s a no-frills, authentic city market that’s been serving locals for well over 200 years. Today it’s one of the best, still-surviving remnants of the way Boston used to be: a modern day connection to the past.
