Top ways to experience Faneuil Hall Marketplace
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.

of all the places you must visit in Boston it is where Liberty started in this country.
This is the place.... you must go here to see the room where they started the revalution with the King of England and his troops. Near where the first Colonist was shot dead and the citizens rose up to beat the tea act and threw the tea from an English ship into the sea. This is History. Now for the food... go oh just walk across the small plaza and you enter into a world of food. Now I must admit when in Boston this is my favorite place. I know others will say go to the North End for Italian food or pizza. but really if you are here for a good time this is the place. You can get the same pizza here and Italian and chinese and Korean and hot dogs and you get the idea.
Just about anything from corned beef sandwiches to chocolate chip cookies with lots of seating in this huge building. You may have to wait a few minutes due to the large crowds of people but they move out. Lots of food inside and places along the outside under cover attached to the building. If you miss this, I think you miss the Icon of Boston and a great historic area so bring the kids. Oh,yes,if it is a nice day you will have all kinds of free entertainment outside on the area around the building. Adults and kids have a fantastic time so spend some time here.

I thought this would be way too much of a tourist trap - it's not. Really fun to take your time and walk up and around - lots of places to buy food and gifts from - really special.

Great variety of foods
Jun 2021 • Family
Definitely worth a visit just to try and buy a variety of lovely foods and beverage like sweets, cookie, pastries, international cuisine and trinkets. Only issue was the rain came down and many took shelter in there so was very crowded.

Expensive and not necessary
Jun 2021 • Family
Look! I totally get it if you want to sample- I suggest sharing lobster rolls or clam chowder or a decadent desert from mikes- but $7 I’ve cream- yeah no as we had 7 family members with us. I think, as a person born and raised in area - returning summers, but take the price down a bit I guarantee folks would just eat more but have more choices - affordable is not a terrible concept

We were so impressed with all the food choices and variety of so many vendors. So much looked fresh. We really like walking from counter to counter and deciding.

Over whelming!
May 2021
If you go in hungry it's hard to decide just what you want to eat. There was such a great assortment of every kind of food you could imagine, from dinner type food to desserts ! The only draw back was that you had to stand up and eat as there weren't any tables. It was a neat place though.

An interesting time.
Apr 2021
Working our way to Harpoon, we stopped by the Marketplace and walked around the area. I enjoyed the cobblestone walkways and the ability to scope out the sites. I really wanted to purchase an ice cream cone, but thought that almost $10 a scoop was a little too much.
