    Great spot that attracts many tourists and talents at the same time. In the summer, the place really comes to life, local musicians, dancers, stunt masters all show off their skills to impress their audience. Located just minutes away from Boston Commons, the theater district, Little Italy, Quincy market has lots of shops and local fooderies with variety of options to choose from.

    Quincy Market is one of the best places to spend an afternoon in Boston and enjoy lunch from an astounding collection of non commercial "order to go" restaurants. After lunch, wander outside Quincy Market to watch skilled street performers or do a little shopping at Faneuil Hall Marketplace before the sun sets.

    A must if visiting Boston. Good food and bars, street performers aren't bad to watch and sometimes during the week I've found a breakdancing troupe going nuts there, those guys are pretty cool to watch. Some establishments are almost as old as the city itself and offer a bit of history.

    Quincy Market offers so much food that it's really hard to decide what to eat. My personal Highlight: "Boston Pretzel" ;)

    Quincy Market is one of the first places I take guests who visit me in Boston! It's an amazing place to spend an afternoon, especially if you're really hungry. There are probably close to 75 different eateries (including several offering famous clam chowda!) within the marketplace, and the smells in that place are just tantalizing. If the weather is nice, there are usually street performers in front of Quincy Market. I went a few months ago and actually witnessed a flash mob proposal! There are also a lot of stores like Gap and Yankee Candle lining the streets nearby. Overall, it's a great starting point for shopping, eating and taking in some history. It's also a 10 minute walk from the North End, so don't fill up too much in Quincy Market; save some room for cannoli and pasta!

    Honestly the best part about Quincy Market is the Urban Outfitters and the Fjallraven backpacks at Newbury Comics. Besides that, the food is overpriced and the whole setting is overrun with tourists. Although, this place makes for a sweet spot to interview people for Journalism class. I do recommend walking a few blocks north for food in the North End or continue East for a great waterfront view!

    Whatever you're craving, you've got a pretty good chance of finding it here. Walk down a long hall of bagels, cake, pizza, sandwiches, smoothies, chocolates, Japanese, Mediterranean, seafood, Italian, whatever. It's downtown, so perhaps not a bad stop if you're doing The Freedom Trail. It gets really packed around lunchtime, so plan accordingly if you don't want to battle the crowds.

    Huge building with tons of food choices!!! I was really excited when I entered this place because there were a bunch of food choices!

    They have seats upstairs and downstairs.

    It's just a great place to have choices for food.

    The place is also historic (the building) and it's really a great venue for food.

    Lots of food stalls of local specialties and ethnic foods. I had a field day looking at and eating through the Lobsta rolls and chowders. This is a great place to find something quick but awesome for lunch.

    The home of Samuel Adams and everything Boston touristy.

    My best experience here was the Fall of 2009, walking about during sunset with the sounds of a jazz trumpet penetrating the evening stillness. Inside here, there's a food court to check out and a lot of good local favorites -- clam chowder -- in addition to regional favorites such as Philly Cheesesteaks and the like.

    Quincy Market is a great place for locals and visitors to grab a quick bite to eat. Quincy Market was established as a marketplace for the common man to purchase goods as well as grab fresh food from local resources. The cool part about Quincy Market is that it’s still like that today! My favorite meal to get lost is in the New England Clam Chowder served in a bread bowl. Savor the flavors and textures of this authentic New England tradition. The clams are hearty and the soup is thick and creamy, making for a deliciously filling meal!

    Great food (loved the Greek restaurant inside). It has a lot to do and see and there were many street performers on the satuarday I was there. It is just very crowded and touristy, so it's just is easy to get a great deal as a rip off.

    This is a great block to walk around and explore. Quincy Market has some amazing food booths (I highly recommend Boston Chowda for lobster rolls and clam chowder). Faneuil Hall is a beautiful historic building where you can hear all about the history from a local.
