This is a great place to go if you purchase a lot of produce, and want to pay less. The experience is much more enriching that going to your local supermarket. There is pretty much every fruit and vegetable you could ask for. As someone who likes fruit, I go with my roommates every once in a while, and we buy fruit for the week. It is also nice to go spend some time downtown, especially on a nice day. Make sure you wash everything before eating it of course. It seems sketchy, but I've never had a problem and its so cheap!

To be fair to the other hawkers, my first and only experience with a hawker at Haymarket was an awful one. In fact, I don't think that even covers it. Being a newcomer to the area, I did not know that I was not allowed to pick my own produce. Instead, I was greeted with a racist, rude hawker and because of my experience, I want everyone to beware. If you want to be treated with disrespect and rude people, go to Haymarket. Even the cheap prices couldn't draw me back for another rude experience. Unforgettable - sure...but not the way that you'd like it to be.

PROS:
CONS: Rude, racist hawkers

I love fresh produce but I can never purchase alot because the only access to this place is by subway. Be careful not to be too choosy with your produce and haggle too much with vendors; you'll be sure to get an earful. Here is where you can buy fruits, vegetables, fish, and olives from vendors. This isn't your local supermarket, so don't expect the opportunity to carefully select and bag your own purchases. Nor should you expect to pay supermarket prices. Haymarket is cheap and no-frills, but an experience to be had.

The Haymarket is a historic produce market in Boston that is open on Fridays and Saturdays. The only way to get there is by the subway, which makes purchasing anything heavy a little challenging. Most of the prices are dirt cheap, but remember that you get what you pay for. I'd stay away from tomatoes and strawberries b/c they're almost all over-ripe.

PROS: Cheap!
CONS: hard to get to

Haymarket is just about the best way to spend a Saturday morning. Wake up early and get their before things start to spoil and while all the hawkers have got enough energy to constantly heckle you to buy 10lbs. of potatoes for 50 cents or something ridiculous. The prices are not to be beaten. Just make sure you browse around before you buy.
