Friday, September 11, 8:30 am – 10:30 am – Taste of Haymarket

Each Friday and Saturday from dawn to dusk, Haymarket, Boston’s centuries-old open air market adjacent to Government Center, the North End, and Faneuil Hall, offers a unique shopping experience. Sellers of fresh produce have clustered in Haymarket since around 1830, although vendors started congregating here at least one hundred years earlier. Haymarket vendors sell huge varieties of fruits and vegetables at great prices from open wooden stands and pushcarts. Specialty grocers selling cheese, fish, Halal meats, pizza, spices, and other delicacies from small shops can be found in an adjacent building on Blackstone Street.
