As the debate heats up between the final two bidders for the Greenway’s Parcel 9 at Haymarket Square, this video is a flashback to the Haymarket of the 1970’s, courtesy of Lerner Home Movies.

probably one of a few blocks in downtown boston that hasnt changed much at all in 40 years (yet).
This video brought back so many wonderful memories of my youth. Saturday mornings we faithfully walked thru Haymarket with my mother, buying our week’s worth of fruit and veggies. After getting home and washing the produce, my mother usually ended up throwing half of the produce away, as it was already starting to go bad.
Why she continued to do this week after week is beyond me, I think she just loved seeing her old friends and arguing with the pushcart owners…..
I wish there where more videos on Haymarket! My Father in law started working there when a man or police would shoot a gun and all workers would run with their push carts to get a place at 3:30in the morning and work really hard until 10 at night on Friday and get up again at 3:30 start all over on Saturday The children followed working in the cold,the rain,and the snow it was really hard work!
