Indoor market with lots of good choices to eat here or take with you. Some examples - nice fish market, honey, spices, bagels, flowers, donuts, wines, produce, sandwiches, soups. Also nice to walk around and "window shop".

Came upon this place when it was freezing outside. Loved all the choices and the vendors. Could use more seating though. The place was packed! Excellent variety of foods, friendly people.

The public market is close to North End and has a lot of local produce for sale including the famous apple cider donuts. You'll also fine wine, maple syrups, juices, fresh fruit produce, meats etc in the market and makes for a nice souvenir stop.

Boston Public Market is fine, although it easily could be so much more. Prices tend to be high, and the food selections are not comprehensive. Nonetheless, there are some fine vendors here, and this is not nearly as kitschy as Quincy Market.

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

I would definitely get a scooter. And you could use UBER. I believe that it is wheelchair accessible. There are many healthy options here and isles are wide enough that you should not have an issue.

I'm not quite sure what 'free parking' you are asking about. Street parking at meters has always been free on Sundays in Boston. If you're asking about a particular parking garage, you'd have to check with that garage.
