Haymarket Boston

The historic Haymarket open-air market sells produce and fish at unbeatable prices. The market is operated by dozens of independent vendors, who are open for business from early in the morning every Friday and Saturday year-round.

The market is located on Blackstone Street in downtown Boston, and is adjacent to the MBTA Haymarket Station on the Green and Orange Lines. Low-cost parking is also available in the Parcel 7 garage. (Have your parking ticket validated by one of the Haymarket merchants.)

The Haymarket Pushcart Association manages the market:
