Quiet and forlorn during the week, Boston Halal Meat Market, and its row of competitors is shoulder to shoulder on Saturdays, when the Haymarket takes over the streets with its discount piles of vegetables. Muslim Halal, like Jewish Kosher, places restrictions on which animals may be eaten and how they must be butchered. You won’t find pork chops at a halal butcher, but you will find chicken, lamb, and, for the adventurous, goat. You’ll also be able to get many of the exotic and brightly colored spices at reasonable prices here, but you have to be prepared to be badgered and haggled with. It’s a small trip to the casbah, but goat is delicious and with all the vegetables on Saturday, you’ll have no problem leaving with a fiery North African inspired stew pot.
