Having read reviews before going, I expected a touristy spot. Well, I was a tourist, so I enjoyed it! Lots of options for shopping and food, it's a great place if you don't quite know where else to eat/shop. Our hotel was nearby, and we came here each day for something. We were able to get some souvenirs of our... More

If you can't find something to eat at Quincy Market, then there is something wrong. They have every option you could ever want. The displays, the smells, the sounds are all amazing. Many of the vendors give out free samples. One of my favorite places to visit. Not just for food, but for the history.

This is a magnificent building from a historical and architectural perspective however a bit of a tourist hub otherwise. Not high on my list but great if you like the one stop idea.

Used to visit here often as a child, seemed more lively then. Now too many chain stores, has lost its appeal. The inside market with all the food vendors was good, all the smells and sights made it fun to pick different options for lunch. Most of the carts and shops though were boring, overpriced. Not too much that was... More

Beautiful color.... and it's food! Then as you indulge the nose knows first, then the tastebuds!!! Enjoy everything, bring your appetite. Large groups from tour buses can create a bit more congestion.

Faneuil Hall (aka Quincy Market) is a great place to stop if you are visiting Boston. It is riddled with shops and various places to eat. It is also close to great pubs that can lead into the North End which is another great place to visit while in Boston. I highly recommend having lunch here and taking in the... More

I love going to Feneuil Hall Marketplace when I get back to Boston area. Last time I was there with a friend I had some lobster mac and cheese that was down right amazing. It was also lovely to watch street artist outside of the place.

Wonderful to shop here this month. Sales at the major popular upscale stores ( Urban Outfitters, Ann Taylor) and some lovely independent almost flea market style booths that sell some unique items. Purchased some adorable socks, PJ pants, and other things at the "flea market" style shopping. Also purchased some name brand items at the upscale stores. Brick walkway- no... More

I've heard of "must have lobster rolls" from QUINCY Market.. a 4" lobster roll (less than half of your typical subway sandwich) cost $26 USD served with a small soup. The lobster roll came from trash, and it ended up in it. I was on vacation, so I didn't give up: I tried two more places, one pastry place and... More
