Sellers of fresh produce have clustered in Haymarket since around 1830. Today vendors sell huge varieties of fruits and vegetables at great prices from open wooden stands with nearby specialty grocers offering cheese, fish, Halal meats, pizza, spices, and other delicacies.
Discover the history of Haymarket, hear from the president of the Haymarket Pushcart Association, and learn why it's an unbeatable Boston shopping experience. Visit vendors and sample fruits and vegetables, cheese, and even pizza. Presented as part of Historic New England's Everyone's History series, The Haymarket Project.
