Since the 1830’s, this has been the site of an open air food market. It can vastly undercut the prices at the grocery store. Individuals, families and restaurants can be seen buying food here on Fridays and Saturdays. Here are a few images from last Friday.

      That’s right, GP – I was kicking myself for not going back later to grab some berries to put on my cereal. I November it is $4 a pint at the grocery store and only $1 a pint at Haymarket. Cheers!

        I think i should take a trip to New Orleans and take some nice photos of it. It is actually on my list of possible vacation spots for this winter. Cheers!

    When we lived in Philly, there was a similar open air market that was open year round – South 9th Street Italian Market, which claims it is the oldest continuous open air market in the country, but I’m not so sure that’s true, considering Haymarket has been around since the 1830’s. There is an open air market in D.C., which is closer to where I now live, and also historic. I haven’t been to this market. D.C. does not appeal to me the same way that Philly and Boston do.

    I remember going to Haymarket the first time I visited Boston as a child. I thought it was the coolest and oddest market I had ever seen. I wondered why all of that food wasn’t inside of a store.

    Nice photos πŸ™‚
