Quincy Market Tours

The main hub of Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Quincy Market has attracted locals and visitors alike for nearly 200 years. The historic food hall located within a Greek Revival-style building is packed with more than 50 shops, 14 restaurants, and 40 food court stops—plus stalls and pushcarts selling everything from exotic coffee to fresh seafood and artisanal bread. 

The Basics
There’s no better way to experience this marketplace than to grab a bite at one of Quincy Market’s many restaurants or food stalls. Stop by on a hop-on, hop-off bus or trolley tour and watch street performers execute acrobatic and musical feats at the historic Faneuil Hall, sit in the rotunda while enjoying a cup of coffee, or step outside to soak up sunshine and enjoy the festive street atmosphere. 

Visit on a narrated coach or city bike tour and let a guide show you the best hidden spots, or delve into Boston’s past on a Freedom Trail history tour. Because of its central location, Quincy Market is also an excellent jumping-off point for visiting other nearby attractions such as the New England Aquarium, Boston Children’s Museum, Boston Public Garden, and Museum of Fine Arts.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • If you have questions about the square, need directions, or are curious about nearby attractions, visit the information kiosk located in the plaza between the South Canopy and South Market building.  
  • Quincy Market has free Wi-Fi, but it may be slow due to the volume of tourist traffic.
  • The market is accessible to wheelchair users and strollers.

How to Get There
The public market is centrally located in downtown Boston, next to the Financial District, the waterfront, and the North End. Limited parking is available nearby and some marketplace vendors offer validation coupons. The easiest way to get to Quincy Market is via the subway, also known as “the T.” Take the blue line to Aquarium/Faneuil Hall; the green line to Haymarket, North Station, Park Street, or Government Center; the orange line to State Street or Haymarket; or the red line to Park Street.

When to Get There
Quincy Market is open year-round. Summer, fall, and springtime visitors can enjoy outdoor seating, and the weather can be ideal for walking and bike tours. Winter visitors can cozy up indoors and see seasonal events such as ice sculpture contests and holiday light shows. 

Exploring Nearby Attractions
Boston is packed with attractions and historic sites from America’s revolutionary past. Besides being a historic destination in itself, Quincy Market is located on the city’s famed Freedom Trail, within walking distance of the Old State House, Boston Common, Beacon Hill, and numerous museums.
