Haymarket Square, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

For hundreds of years, Boston residents have come to the Haymarket Square's open-air market for produce. Open all year on Fridays and Saturdays (except Christmas and New Year's Day), great bargains are always available for the price conscious and fresh conscious shopper.  

Like outdoor markets the world over, banter and barter between customers and vendors is as common as it is expected.

Many of the vendors are multi-generation families from nearby neighborhoods and many languages and accents can be heard among the merchants and the customers.

That's an incredibly good price for avocados around here - even if it were summer. It is rare to buy a single one for less than one dollar in a regular indoor supermarket.

And always, everywhere, anytime around Boston, you will see a Boston Red Sox baseball team logo "B" on something.  Fans have to eat good food, too - beer and peanuts and hot dogs from the ballpark only goes so far.
