The history of Boston’s iconic open-air market dates back to 1820. Haymarket's prices are as low as they go, but local produce is less the focus here than at most other markets in the city, so be prepared to sift through the stands if you're looking for the freshest fruits and veggies. The experience of haggling and comparison shopping among the dozens of vendors - most of whom set up their stands before sunrise - is a tourist attraction in itself; keep your ears open and you'll hear every accent under the sun. Wait until the vendors start to break down their stalls and you'll encounter a level of everything-must-go desperation that yields unimaginable deals. (Who cares if you can't use a dozen limes when they only cost a dollar?)
