The Evolution of Quincy Market


The Evolution of Quincy Market

Imagine the amazement of the Boston population in 1826 when Quincy Market was opened as a public market. The innovative use of granite and glass in post and beam construction made a definitive statement about the Boston’s emergence as a major city. Since that time Quincy Market has seen glory days and dismal transitional periods. The roller coaster history of this market complex is worth an in depth look into the evolution of this marketplace from produce and meat distribution center to a bicentennial tourist mecca and within the next few years to a re-imagined twenty-first century space.
