Haymarket is a fun, loud, crazy Boston experience. It kind of reminds me of the produce section of Pike Place Market in Seattle. It is not always open so check the schedule before you go, but if it is open, it is worth the visit!

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

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
