Meet the Ducks: Haymarket Hanna

Hannah is named after Haymarket Square, which is Boston’s biggest open-air market. Operating on Fridays and Saturdays during daylight hours, Haymarket is the place to go to get your fruits and vegetables for the week ahead. Located between the North End and Faneuil Hall, it gets a little loud as venders yell to passersby about their wares and the deals that they are offering that day. Sometimes it seems like everything there is a “Buck a Box” or a “Dollar a Pound”.

He no longer wanted to be a pirate. His crew asked him to leave, he did. He swam ashore and found BDT, they promised him a new ship and a new crew. The pacifist pirate is pleased with his new line of work!
