We went for dinner and a little shopping and loved all of the holiday lights! The tree was huge and gorgeous. There was a light show that was synchronized to music. It was quite nice!

Upon arrival there were pekoe filling the common area near the buildings and as we looked around we recognized many shops (I.e. American Eagle, Gap) and wondered...is this it? We wandered inside to a bar to grab a drink and found the rest of it! Tons of food venues, vendors, bars...! A great place to walk around even if you... More

This is certainly one of the main place to go when you're in Boston with loads of food stalls and restaurants to choose from and stalls selling gifts with adjacent retail outlets. Visited during December (Christmas) period, and the place was wonderfully decorated in which you could feel the festive in the air. If you're walking the Boston Freedom Trail,... More

Such an interesting place. Loafs of food stalls to buy from. You can literally eat your way round the world. There was a very goof guitarist called Ryan when we went. He added to the already fantastic atmosphere. We're going back for breakfast & lunch tomorrow!!

We have made several visits to the Marketplace on numerous trips to Boston. For some reason we end up walking at night. The food vendors and aromas offer a great reward from the cold of a late November's stroll. Most every kind of food is available and priced reasonably. During the Christmas season the great tree is lit. This is... More

A great mix of stalls where you can get anything from a pencil to a meal. We had a fantastic lobster roll here and a few souvenirs were purchased including Yankee Candles. Definitely recommended as a relaxing change from sightseeing

Went to a US Citizens' swearing in at Feneuil Hall and adored this historic site!!! It was a very thrilling and emotional event! After, we wandered through the marketplace and settled into a bar at the far end...not sure the name.... Just wandering through the food court (Quincey Market) was fabulous....you can get ANYTHING here, from seafood to italian to... More
