We went early AM on a Saturday and the open market outside of Faneuil Hall was bustling. Most of the shops and food vendors were just barely opening but it gave a nice, peaceful vibe. So much history in that area that it’s a must...More

Do a walk through then head out. It’s so crowded you can’t even walk. This is the epicenter of every tourist that comes to Boston. Lots of food stalls.

It’s busy at this market, especially in the food hall. The food isn’t cheap and you’ll need to eat it pronto in the limited seating area as others will soon want your seat. I have a friend who’s vegan and there was virtually no vegan...More

Boston's historic Faneuil Hall marketplace ys a great place to shop and find all sorts of food in the area. Good for crowd watching. Nicely preserved historic building. Tough parking though. Better to take the T or a tour.

There is are a couple of parking garages next to Faneuil Hall. They are convenient but expensive. A couple of hours will run you a little over 20 and a whole day over 30.
