I am not one to shop to begin with, but this area is one the verge of ridiculous. They have "permanent" type wagons set up outside Quincy market, both between the two buildings, but also on the fringes. I did not see anything of value, nor what I ever would want in all those shops, that probably number 100 in total. Don't the Chinese love us for ordering this stuff.

Unique Suggestions: Walk right on by-stop inside for a piece of fudge, maybe. Fanueil Hall inside the building is not as bad as Quincy Market buildings, and has some more unique items to shop for.

Fun Alternatives: Do not go there-like an old song phase goes -"as your walking down the street, just walk on by..."

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
