Food and The City

I had the opportunity to experience a day at Quincy Market and indulge in some of the guilty pleasures they have to offer. These are dangerous grounds when you’re trying to eat healthy. Quincy Market is located in downtown Boston. It’s a historic market complex built between 1824-1826. The market was designated a National Historic Landmark, recognized
as one of the largest market complexes built in the US in the first half of the 19th century. Quincy Market provides over 100 of the finest shops and specialty pushcarts and you’ll find over 36 international food vendors within the market, the largest dining hall in New England. Aside from the history, what really stole my attention was the variety of food.


I wanted to try every single food station in this market but obviously I couldn’t do it all in one day. I did, however get to try a few vendors. I had this delicious raspberry mango frappe from “The Monkey Bar- a bar with a twist” highly recommended. Ugh! Wishing I could have one right now. Another thing I tried was a ham and pineapple bagel pizza from “Bagel Ville” and toward the end of the day, yet another latte from Boston Cafe. A coffee lover needs her fix. They have a huge selection of candies and chocolates. I’m surprised I didn’t need Tums by the end of the night. I can’t wait to go again and do some more food tasting! It’s ok to have a cheat day.

After all, you know what they say…

“Full Stomach, Happy Heart”
