Haymarket


HaymarketToday we’re going to take a trip to Haymarket, Boston’s weekly outdoor market.

Where do you go if you want ten oranges for a dollar? What about a case of strawberries for five dollars? Or maybe you’re looking for something more exotic, like 5 loquats for a dollar? You’ll find all of these things at Haymarket.

Haymarket’s been around for well over a hundred years, and it’s quite the experience. To find out how it happens every week, I tracked down the board of the Haymarket Pushcart Association sitting on a Blackstone Street Jersey barrier.
