Haymarket Attendance Is Up

7/21/2008 12:03:00 PM
Attendance at Haymarket is up. And for good reason.

About a month ago I was at Star Market walking through the produce section and I spotted some cherries. It's my own fault for not paying attention, all I saw was a sale sign that said $3.99 so I thought "Great! I haven't had cherries in years, $4 ain't so bad." What I didn't realize was that it was $3.99 a pound and that bag of cherries rung up as $10. I was too embarrassed to tell the checkout person I didn't want them anymore, and just hoped that they would be really awesome cherries. They weren't. I want my $10 back.

"It wasn't until gas prices and everything shot up that I started to take a look," said Billy Patterson, 34, a Wrentham father who works downtown and who carried his Whole Foods bag while shopping yesterday. "I get cherries down here for $2 a pound. I was at Whole Foods: $7 a pound."

"They have good prices, but you have to be careful," said Kelly Hanns, 23, of the Back Bay. "You may get seven apples for $1, but two or three of them might not be the best."

I typically only get the fairly hardy fruits/veggies from haymarket because there's a better chance that they'll be decent. Potatoes, onions, lemons/limes, apples. I've had bad experiences with the more exotic stuff like peaches and mangos so I tend to steer clear of those.
