A Revere man was arrested for allegedly selling heroin and cocaine while working a produce tent at Boston’s Haymarket, according to Boston police.

Officers said they followed Florentino Figueroa-Barragan, 36, after he allegedly made a “street level drug transaction’’ behind a dumpster on Blackstone Street at about 11:50 a.m. Friday, Boston police said in a statement.

Figueroa-Barragan then walked into a nearby tent at the historic outdoor fruit and vegetable market, where he “appeared to be employed,’’ police said in a statement. He was allegedly seen making another sale next to the tent about an hour later, while under police surveillance, according to the statement.
