The Fish Market is one of the largest markets in the United States.
It serves about 3 million customers annually, according to the Boston Market Association.
The Boston Market was founded in 1851.
It opened as the Boston Fish and Fish Market in the 1840s, but it changed hands multiple times, starting with a company owned by the British in the late 1800s.
The company was purchased by the Boston Merchants Association in 1899.
The city of Boston bought the fish market in 2008.
It was originally the Boston Red Stock Company and became the Fish Market Corporation.
