A real bargain. I use this as a way to save money but I can see this being an attraction, old school market with the bustle and hustle that reminds me of the markets of south Asia. Fresh quality produce for cheap. Obviously some vendors...More

Great market with wide range of produce. Bustling atmosphere and best pricing in town. Conveniently located across the street from the North End by Boston Public Market.

We really enjoyed this market and came here most days for Bagels. Lots of unique products, delectable snacks, wine tasting and beer sampling. We did not enjoy our Lobster Roll from here.

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.

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
