Boston's Haymarket

I'm back from Boston. I had such a fabulous time: a lot of walking around, eating out, and just relaxing. The weather was gorgeous: blue sky, sunny and perfect for a mini fall getaway. This was another one of my solo vacations, which I quite enjoy from time to time. This time, however, I was lucky enough to meet up with 3 Boston food bloggers: come back later and I'll tell you all about it.

For now, though, a photo food essay of Boston's Haymarket. I went to the market on Saturday and was flabbergasted by the variety of produce and by how incredibly inexpensive everything was! Too bad my hotel did not have a mini kitchen. I had to be satisfied with walking around, snapping photos and looking at everyone else filling up their bags with fruits and vegetables.




 
 




 There were two guys shucking oysters at the market. Not having lunch yet, I could not resist: six oysters for $5!




After the fresh seafood, I also bought a container of green fresh figs for $2 from these two older men: how endearing are they?











I have a few more posts to write about eating out in Boston. Make sure not to miss them! Seafood, tapas, dessert, etc. And head to my other blog for non food photos from Boston (coming up soon!).

Can't wait to see more from your trip to Boston -- city of my heart! I moved to NY after 5 years in Boston, and part of me will always consider it home up there. I used to love strolling Haymarket.

Hope you had a wonderful time, and wonderful food!

Those are lovely photos! Jesus christ that's some cheap produce. Really wish the farmer's markets here were that cheap! I'd be there all the time.

Are those oysters or clams? I love both, especially raw clams because they're harder to find!

I love Haymarket. One of my funniest Haymarket memories was being late for my college graduation ceremony (at the then-Fleet Center), and sprinting through Haymarket with my entire family to get there. We made it (barely).

Ahhh seeing this reminds me of home... shopping at Korean markets is fun, but I miss the price and variety of Haymarket!

They are CLAMS, not Oysters!!!
