Faneuil Hall Marketplace & Quincy Market Building

This market building, first built in 1742, sits at the site of the old town dock. Town meetings, held here between 1764 and 1774, heard Samuel Adams and others lead cries of protest against the imposition of taxes on the colonies. The building was enlarged in 1806.
Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, a nd Lucy Stone brought their struggles for freedom here in the 19th century. The Market stalls on the first floor of Faneuil Hall service shoppers much as they did in Paul Revere's day. Housed in 3

Beautifully restored 19th century buildings, its 125 shops& 21 restaurants offer tantalizing delicacies and unique gifts in a festive atmosphere that spills onto cobblestone streets filled with an amazing variety of street performers.
An eclectic experience with something for everyone.
