This outdoor market near Faneuil Hall carries on amid the din and confusion of Boston's Big Dig project. The wide selection of fresh produce and fish is available every Friday and Saturday, year-round, rain or shine from dusk until dawn. The market tends to get crowded but that adds to its charm. Expect to get some good deals, prices are less expensive than you would pay in a store. This weekly event is a magnet for photographers trying to capture the "real" Boston. Cash only.
- Venue Description:
There are more than 100 places to eat, shop and drink at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, also known as Quincy Market. French merchant Peter Faneuil gave the hall that precedes the marketplace to his adopted home of Boston in 1742. It has been called the Cradle of Liberty because of the number of revolutionaries and abolitionists who delivered important speeches here. The hall is now a tourist center and place to shop, but public meeting facilities are still available.
