Haymarket Square, Boston, c. late 19th century

Haymarket Square in Boston is an open-air fruit and vegetable market near the North End, Government Center, West End and Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Haymarket has been open since about 1830, and has since undergone many transformations in that time, but still retains its location and charm.[1] The market is operated by the Haymarket Pushcart Association.[2]

Unlike the usually upscale offerings at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Haymarket Square offers produce at a very cheap cost, sometimes half the bill of a normal supermarket.[3] The market is open during daylight hours every Friday and Saturday.

Haymarket station on the MBTA Orange and Green lines is named after the square.

Haymarket Square is the name of a hotel and market building[4] proposed for construction on Blackstone Street between Hanover Street and North Street, a block south of the historic location of Haymarket Square.
