Word on the street
So all those food supply warehouses out in Chelsea/Everett/wherever sell produce to restaurants, who select the stuff they want and get their pick of the inventory. Whatever is leftover is the stuff they can't get rid of before it goes bad, so they sell it in bulk to people for cheap. In turn, these people then try to sell it for whatever they can get for it. So that's why everything is so cheap at Haymarket and that's why there's piles of rotting stuff everywhere. There has to be an article about this somewhere. Bobcat (talk) 17:38, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Need detailed map showing
This page is misleading, because it is mostly about the pushcart market, which Bostonians refer to as "Haymarket" rather than "Haymarket Square." For example, see this recent article: http://digital.designnewengland.com/designnewengland/september_october_2015?pg=NaN#pgNaN
I propose to reorganize the content, keeping the historic information about Haymarket Square on the current page, and moving the information about the market onto a new page called "Haymarket Pushcart Market."
The draft new page about the market is Draft:Haymarket - Boston. Once the new page is approved, I propose to remove the market information from this Haymarket Square page, and replace it with a link from this page to the new one. NewtonCourt (talk) 22:09, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm trying to track down the source of this 1964 aerial photo: http://affordablehousinginstitute.org/blogs/us/wp-content/uploads/central_artery_1964_scollay_square_demolished.jpg
It appears on this page: http://affordablehousinginstitute.org/blogs/us/page/80 The organization that runs the page couldn't tell me where they found the photo.
