“Home of amazing food vendors”

Faneuil Hall, located near the waterfront and today's Government Center, in Boston, Massachusetts, has been a marketplace and a meeting hall since 1742. It was the site of several speeches by Samuel Adams, James Otis, and others encouraging independence from Great Britain, and is now part of Boston National Historical Park and a well known stop on the Freedom Trail. Faneuil Hall Marketplace is Boston shopping at its best with more than 100 of the finest shops and specialty pushcarts. Locally-owned treasures, nationally recognized retailers, and the Bullmarket...the world's first "fleet" of wholly unique pushcarts featuring New England artisans and their fabulous wares. Local merchants and entrepreneurs have always been the Marketplace's key attraction. Shopping for one-of-a-kind gifts and specialty items at Faneuil Hall Marketplace is always an adventure. The Colonnade - 35 food stalls line the Quincy Marketplace Colonnade to comprise a melting pot of fresh homemade delicacies from all over the world. Exotic coffees, fresh seafood, baked breads, gourmet desserts, hearty gyros and healthy salads are just a few of the food delights to be eaten at butcher block tables in the building's central Upper and Lower Rotunda, on an outdoor bench or on a stroll through the halls. The second floor Rotunda also features old market signs and a photographic exhibit showing the history of the Marketplace. The Shops - Over 45 owner-operated and nationally owned shops fill the Marketplace with a unique selection of jewelry, formal and casual clothing, accessories, and giftware. The Restaurants - Eat, drink and be captivated at 14 restaurants and pubs, including Cheers, McCormick & Schmick's, Mija Cantina & Tequila Bar and Ned Devine's Irish Pub. Come and dine beneath beautiful glass canopies and at our outdoor cafés.

This is really a working market with food and shops. Don't be surprised to find the locals getting their groceries. The real attraction is the performance art, that seems to be going on all the time. I think I saw my first "live" statue here many years before it was a thing. For my Cincinnati friends, think of Faneuil Hall as Findlay Market on a much grander scale.

The marketplace has a ton of vendors with any type of food you could ever want. A great place to walk around and sample new foods and desserts.

This is THE place to hit in Boston. Not only is it a historic landmark with a super rich history, but it's also at the heart of a cool cobblestone district with plenty to do all around in terms of great food vendors and shopping. If it's your first time in Boston, there are no excuses good enough to miss it!

It's fun to do once in a while. One of the most touristy spots in Boston, I wouldn't bother with the food when the Italian North End is just a short walk away. Tons of bars, it becomes party central when the sun goes down. I would not expect to find a lot of Boston locals drinking here though. Plenty of college students (a college town, after all!) and plenty of tourists, but not the place to go for local flavor. The shopping can be fun, and a little cheesy. It's good for souvenirs. There are usually street performers that are good for a laugh, and if you like history, it really is a historical landmark. It's just hard to see behind all the people!

My kids absolutely loved the artists performing there when we visited last summer. A great vibe, especially for 2 small town kids. They want to return this year.

Faneuil Hall has some great food, but more chains than I expected. It's definitely worth a visit but I preferred the restaurants in the North End.

Enjoyed it when I came here a few times a few years ago, but stopped by again recently, and it was flooded with tourists. The food inside the main hall seems to be going down in quality, and the amount of tourists made me lose trust in any of the surrounding restaurants. So I left :(

Really great New England classic/colonial architecture. There's lots of fun shops and restaurants. It's a great way to spend a sunny, pleasant afternoon. It's definitely a tourist stop though.

I'm obsessed with Faneuil Hall! I've been going here since I was a little girl, and the food is seriously TO DIE FOR! They have everything. My favorites: Pizzeria Regina's pepperoni pizza slice (it's massive), and of course, clam chowder. If I lived in Boston I'd go here every day for lunch. It's a must-visit.

Super touristy, lots of food places. Worth checking out if you're near the area but wouldn't go out of my way to see
