Hey Haymarket!

Haymarket Square in Boston is an open-air fruit and vegetable market near the North End, Government Center, West End and Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Haymarket has been open since about 1830, and has since undergone many transformations in that time, but still retains its location and charm.


Unlike the usually upscale offerings at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Haymarket Square offers produce at a very cheap cost, sometimes half the bill of a normal supermarket. The market is open during daylight hours every Friday and Saturday.  Haymarket station on the MBTA Orange Line is named after the square.

Let's meet up at Haymarket to capture the sights of this awesome landmark.  From people, to produce, to meats and fish, Haymarket is ideal for photographers that are looking to explore their camera's and the range of visuals from the activity of buyers and sellers making a deal.

We will meet at a specified location, and set out the ground rules for a  small contest.  The end result will hopefully be a great portfolio of visual images and one lucky winner with a small acknowledgement of their effort for us all.

    Good balance of a variety of people both as customers and sellers

    Sorry to ruin the party, but I just thought I'd pass on what they told me.

    I was there, but just left after two venders told me about a guy (and pointed him out to me) who smashed a photographer's camera for taking pictures. Apparently he had some authority at the market and said, "Not at Haymarket." I know it's a public space and we should legally be allowed to shoot, but I don't want to risk that with my gear. I hope you all get some good pictures and don't run into any trouble.

    I am not sure where we meet. There may not be too many people walking around with Nikons and Canons on a busy market day. Descend on Haymarket - if you spot someone with a DSLR give a wave. if they wave back they are with the group. Let's meet at Dirty Nellie's at 11:30 to compare notes. That will give us 2 hours of shooting. Capture the "emotion" of Haymarket and let's see if we can get some great work for this meet up.

    Depending on time I might not be able to make the September 1 date but that doesn’t mean anything to the rest of you. Pls let me know when the group agrees on a time and final date-I want to participate. Thank you.

    We are setting the date for this meet up. Does Sept 1 in the morning work for the group? if not we can push it back a few weeks. We can meet for coffee in the morning and agree on the assignment for the day. The results should be good with different styles and different scenes.

    I am looking for a person to host the event. Not much to do but to help to arrange the meetup on the day of the event and to set the date.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
