    Best prices for produce and vegetables. Its awesome to get 8-10 Apples for $2 etc. That is if you can stomach some of the blatantly racist vendors. Luckily many vendors sell similar items so no prob..

    Inside info: go at around 6:45 pm in the summers when the shops close. You get a better bargain

    Super cheap fresh produce and fish, but goes off quickly so only buy for that day or the next.
  • Lilith A.
    FYI- Most produce is NOT organic here. Many items can be purchased in better shape at Stop&Shop for same prices- it's NOT always a bargain!

    Awesome landmark in Boston. Cheap produce and meats. Need to understand that these represent produce neat the end of their sales life. So peak of ripeness means shorter shelf life, buy accordingly.

    Really cheap produce from the same warehouses that supermarkets use (just a few days later)

    This is not a farmers market. It's a surplus market.

    These guys will sometimes haggle. Watch the scale that they don't play games. The older acerbic vendors can seem pushy and even intimidating, they are filled with hot air. Women prepare to be hit on.

    An unknown tip is that some of the places validate parking for the nearby garage for up to 3 hours.

    There are a lot of the same things at different prices and qualities. Great place to fill the fridge but make sure you check before you buy

    Great prices. Hit and miss on quality but many many vendors from which to choose. Tasty strawberries from one vendor; mushy raspberries from another. Selling two for one at close of market.

    Never mind laundry, purchase a half dozen oranges instead. : ) Where else can you find produce for mere pence?

    Not actually a farmer's market - mostly conventionally grown produce too close to expiration date to sell to a supermarket. Good deals if you use your haul fast though!

    I'm here every week- if your wear flip flops like any other time, watch where you step- there are cobble stones.

    The stands at the front charge more, but if you work your way toward the back, you'll likely find some incredible deals

    Open-air fruit & vegetable market every Fri & Sat morning. Dates back to 1830. Cheap produce is acquired by vendors from wholesalers needing to make space for newer shipments. More info in blog.<LINK> Read more

    Check the basement shops for fresh fish on Fridays and Saturdays! The quality of the veggies is better on Fridays, but the prices are better on Saturdays.

    Ask before you pick/taste test. The good vendors will be happy to let. Always check what you get!

    Always check ur produce for bruises or mold if you don't pick it out.. They WILL pawn it off on you!

    Some of us have been shopping here since we were graduate students (at Harvard, or wherever else). I still see my grad school friends there on Saturday afternoons.

    Bostonians have shopped here for two centuries. The alfresco Friday-Saturday scene is pretty no-frills – simple tents, vendors shouting loud – but the prices on produce can’t be beat.
