In the Globe’s front-page article this morning about a proposed public market in downtown Boston, there’s the following quote:
The recommendations for the indoor public market call for the development of a marketplace similar to Pike Place in Seattle or Reading Terminal in Philadelphia, both highly successful attractions that provide a unique window into the culture of those cities.
If the proposed project’s goal is to provide a unique window into Boston’s culture, can we really do better than Haymarket? You haven’t been to Boston until you’ve been yelled at by a Haymarket vendor for daring to test the quality of his produce.
Next thing you know, there’ll be talk of converting the Pleasant Cafe to an Upper Crust. Heaven forbid.
