The Haymarket Project
Historic New England, the Haymarket Pushcart Association (HPA), and photographer Justin Goodstein present images and oral history excerpts conducted with vendors and customers of Haymarket, Boston's centuries-old open-air market.
The Haymarket Project features photographs of the market, vendors (pushcarts and shops), workers, and customers collected over the course of an entire year to document the market’s history, changes over time, daily life at the market, special holiday foods, and challenges. The interviews reflect the stories of long-time vendors and more recent immigrants who have created a diverse cross-section of cultures at Haymarket.
Haymarket Project photographs, along with historic images of the market, are featured in Haymarket from Arcadia Publishing. Buy a copy today.
