Inexpensive market for vegetables and fruits

This market has got a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Everything is very cheap here. But just don't buy the stuff which is packets, it could be stale and bad.

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

I enjoy going to Haymarket to get produce for the week or to make something special for a party that day or the next. Most of the produce at the market is going to be bad after a week, it's just closer to expiry than the grocery store. Sometimes (when I have the time) I buy, prep, and freeze all... More

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 and Saturday to score the best deals, but be aware that it's crowded, cash only,... More

A friend told me about the Haymarket so I visited it on a bustling Friday afternoon. There were so many vendors selling so many interesting foods such as fruit, vegetables, fish, and more. The atmosphere was great and everyone seemed to be enjoying the whole processing of shopping for their dinner or the upcoming week! Highly recommended to see, even... More

We found this market by accident, coming off the Haymarket subway station and walking toward Quincy Market. The array of fruits and vegetables was awesome! My mother was lamenting that our hotel room did not have a refrigerator, the blueberries were half the price and huge! We did grab some fruit for a snack, but if we were locals we... More

I have been fighting the crowds for over 40 years and wouldn't have it any other way!! This is one of the best farmer's markets I've ever been to, ever, out of the marzillion I've visited while travelling for work. It's been great watching the vendors grow up and take over their parents' stands--you become like family

Best place in Boston to get fruit an vegetables and enjoy the atmosphere of a traditional market place. You can get up to 5 good apples for $1. It definitely worth it. Consider taking a bad or carry on like I do every 2 weeks.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
