Loved this shopping area of Boston. Quincey market is full of food stalls - everything you could imagine! Then around each side there are shops. Great atmosphere here and in easy reach of everything. The freedom trail passes in front of Quincey market so you can't miss it.

This is nothing but a foodcourt and a place to buy souvenirs. There's a great selection of places to eat but I was expecting it to be more than a glorified souvenir shop.

Quincy Market located at Faneuil Hall Marketplace Make sure you walk the entire place, before settling on your food choice. Seating can get hectic, but it is part of the market place atmosphere. Buskers are tremendous! Pizzeria Regina was awesome and did not have a long line up as the North area location does ; Carol Ann Bake Shop has... More

Faneuil Hall bottom floor has some great souvenirs as well as the National Parks kiosk which will give you plenty of information about the area, Freedom Trial, etc. Park Rangers give Freedom Trail walking tours as well as talks in the Hall museum upstairs which are all free but must have free ticket. Tours are frequent, so you can plan.... More

Quincy Market located at Faneuil Hall Marketplace made me wish I had a bottomless stomach! Make sure you walk the entire place, be warned it gets crowded, before settling on your food choice.

Great variety of foods and places to buy souvenirs. Yeah, it's a tourist trap, like what every major city has. But it is a nice tourist trap.

Marketplace with plenty of places to eat and drink alfresco. Some nice shops around and in the Hall. Looks especially good at night. Great place to refuel and people watch.

Go hungry, your appetite will be satisfied here. Located behind historic Faneuil Hall it is a must see. The area is alive with music, street performers, shops and let's not forget the food! I think there are at least 68 various food vendors. Great food, we tried the Lobster rolls, served with fries and coleslaw, scallops wrapped in bacon, Philly... More

Centrally located Faneuil Hall and the marketplace behind it is a great place to shop, eat, sit a spell, people watch, or walk to nearby restaurants, stores and attractions. Bustling with activity all day and into the night. And the food court is fantastic with seating available in the center of the marketplace.

On a cruise ship stop in Boston we picked out this attraction to visit. A mere 20 minute walk from the cruise ship terminal brought us to the Faneuil Hall, which includes other buildings and the open area around the buildings. Full of food stalls and other items, the area around is full of shops and makes for a very... More
