Quincy Market

With the cobblestone streets and bustling halls, the Quincy Market offers a sensory feast that captures the heart of the city's historical significance and present-day vibrancy.


Location

The Quincy Market is located in the heart of Boston, MA, adjacent to Faneuil Hall and Government Center. It shares the same compound as the North, South, and West Market buildings, creating a colonnaded complex that frames the bustling square.

The History 

The history of Quincy Market is woven into the cultural fabric of Boston. Built in the early 1800s, the market was named after Mayor Josiah Quincy, who championed its construction to replace the Old Town House as the main market area. The market's erection was itself an act of innovation, featuring an impressive granite and redbrick structure with a lauded Greek Revival architectural style.

What to See in Quincy Market

The Quincy Market bears Boston's cultural and historical significance that makes it a must-visit destination, but there's so much more to see and do within its storied walls.

The Great Hall

At the center of the Quincy Market the Colonnade is the Great Hall. This expansive two-level rotunda is a showcase of exquisite architectural design, which has since been repurposed to host a vibrant array of eateries, from world-class seafood to artisanal desserts. The atmosphere buzzes with the crowd's energy, street performers adding their kind of flavor to the feast.

The North, South, and West Market Buildings

Each of these three market buildings radiates its unique ambiance. The North Market is a hub of commerce, hosting numerous shops and boutiques. The South Market is where you'll find more eateries, including the famous 'Quincy Market Colonnade Chowder.' The West Market, with its open floor plan, often invites buskers and events, making it a space not only to shop but to celebrate.

Beyond the Quincy Market

Quincy Market is more than just a place to shop or dine, it's the gateway to experiencing Boston's vibrant history and culture. Just steps away, you'll find some of the city's most iconic sights and attractions.

Faneuil Hall 

Connected to Quincy Market, the Faneuil Hall Marketplace is another pivotal point in American history, and it is often referred to as the "Cradle of Liberty." You can immerse yourself in the history of the American Revolution and witness the landmark where many a founding father's speeches resounded. This iconic structure also serves as a starting point for the famous Freedom Trail, a red line that leads visitors on a 2.5-mile walk to 16 historically significant sites throughout the city.

Boston Harbor

A short walk from Quincy Market, you will find the Boston Harbor, where you can take a scenic boat ride or visit the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. The picturesque views and serene reprieve from the city's hustle and bustle make it the perfect place to ponder the role this historic port has played in shaping the city and the nation..
