During daylight hours on Fridays and Saturdays, the Haymarket on Hanover Street, near Boston's North End, is rich with culture and bargains. Visitors who stroll through the crowded alley can spend very little and come home with a full load of fresh...more

Haymarket is one of the historic markets in Boston. It is a farm market where the farm produce is sold at a relatively lower rate. Haymarket is on the route of a Freedom Trail walking tour. Plan your freedom trail walking tour on a Friday...More

Haymarket is a fun, loud, crazy Boston experience. It kind of reminds me of the produce section of Pike Place Market in Seattle. It is not always open so check the schedule before you go, but if it is open, it is worth the visit!

HayMarket is one of the famous kitchen market in Boston.There are lots of street vendors in their designated place to sell their produce there specially in the week end. People also do come here to enjoy their weekend & shopping.

With so many touristy things to do in Boston (some worthwhile, some hokey), this is a genuine Boston place with enough things for a traveler to enjoy, but also a chance to get a feel for Boston. Our favorite -- Red's Best seafood!

It's only open on Friday's and Saturday's, so we went on Friday morning. Very interesting to see all of the vendors selling top quality produce at low prices, and locals coming from all over to purchase.

The place is fun! So many varieties of fruits and vegetables. People screaming their products price and qualities in a very fun way. I love it. The price is very good. I paid 1US$ on a papaya.

Haymarket is and always has been a blast. It is loud and fast paced. The vendors are gruff, but that's part of the charm. The prices and people watching are unbeatable.

Great prices for fresh fruits, vegetables and fish. Close to the Boston Public Market. It's also the area for the main hub for the metro (Haymarket Station).

Very crowded and busy with numerous stands selling fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, etc. I had heard that this is not a Farmer’s Market, i.e, is not fresh produce straight from the field, but instead is left over fruits/vegetables that didn’t sell in the grocery stores...More

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

Just back from my trip to Boston for the 4th of July weekend, I posted some report in a couple threads but I will consolidate here for future trip planners to easily find. July 2nd Left NJ around 1:30pm July 2nd to head to Woburn Courtyard. Took Parkway to Tapenze Bridge to I84 east. Hit major traffic due to Overturned tractor trailor and about 30 min of traffic crossing hartford. Arrived in Woburn at 8pm. Hotel was nice enough, room was small but because the furniture was so large. Bed...More

Hey, I'm glad you and the girlfriend had a good last minute trip. I'm happy you liked The Restaurant for breakfast. I had a good feeling about that place after reading a local article about it. I also see you made it to Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester, Rockport, and The Village Restaurant in Essex. I love The Village. Do you remember what you ate there? You did well for a last minute trip. You got to visit a good bit of Cape Ann as well as Boston. Glad you two had a good time. Thanks...More
crowds in march (1 Reply)
How bad are the crowds at BC in mid-March, particularly for the lifts for the green/blue slopes? I was thinking of Centennial and Haymarket....and any advice as to how crowded ski school is at that time-do they limit class size to 10 or so?

It's Spring break> always busy. We usually get our best snow in March, however & the weather is usually GREAT! I would recommend making reservations for ski school as we only have so many instructors & they book-up at that time of year with all the little kiddos being out of school! Lift lines are always busiest in the a.m. and Haymeadow is always a "freeway" at the end of the ski day!!! Learn to avoid peak times or just grin & bare it!!
