Market
$
“Boston Public Market is indoors and open 7 days a week. Right next door is Boston Haymarket which is outdoors and only open Friday and Saturday. Both are fun and unique! The cheapest parking is in Parcel 7 Garage 136 Blackstone Street, Boston. If you go on Friday & Saturday and get your ticket validated by a Haymarket Vendor, the parking is only a couple of bucks for up to 2 hours- which is the best deal in Boston! Ask for details when you arrive. And have fun!”
