Before the Revolution women from Kittery and Eliot rowed canoes to hawk their vegetables with the fishermen on Market Street in Portsmouth. By the 1840s the city was formally renting indoor space to fisherman (middle) by Spring Hill at the corner of Ceres and Bow Streets. Today tourists dine and drink here overlooking the scenic tugboats at what later became the railroad ferry landing.
