Haymarket and Quincy Market, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Continuing my visit to Boston, I decided to ride the subway rather than walk from the Boston Common to the Haymarket area. The Green Line trip was quick and efficient.

Haymarket features both an open air fruit and produce market and an indoor market. As recently as 2007, the Ghost Pepper shown above was the hottest in the world but, it has been eclipsed in recent years by other varieties.

The Boston Public Market is an indoor year-around facility that features locally sourced products.

Product exchanged for currency - the essence of interpersonal commerce among humans.

Because these stalls are set up on the street, the fickle Boston weather means that most vendors erect tents to protect their products and customers - and keep the flow of cash and goods moving.

The Boston Red Sox baseball team may not be doing very well this year but, that never dampens the devotion of die-hard fans.
A short walk away from Haymarket, the Quincy Market which is next door to Faneuil Hall offers hungry visitors and tourists a wide range of eating choices.

Diners can enjoy eating in the rotunda of this 1825 building.

And during decent weather, buskers of many talents entertain outside - like this pre-teen Jerry Lee Lewis style rocker.

Boston is a world-class city and always a pleasure to wander about.
