Wonderful shops and food offerings. Truly a delight. Well worth an afternoon. Meats, cheeses, juices, spices, ice creams and coffees by some of the city's best purveyors. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!

Excellent upscale hipster-esque market with great cooking stores, markets, deli, wine shops etc. There is no shortage of fantastic looking places to get lunch. We got cheese and meats at the wine bar and it was great. The kitchen supply store is great too.

Went to farmers market outside had good assortment of produce. Inside the Ferry building. Acme bread was very good. Ordered Italian donut with custard from vendor inside it was cold and just ok. Very difficult to sample things. Go early it gets very busy. Don't intend to use the bathroom here. The line is always out the door.

Whenever I am in San Francisco on a Saturday morning, I always head to the Ferry Building and its extensive outdoors Farmers Market. The Farmers Market includes all kinds of fruits and vegetables, meats and seafood, baked goods and cheeses, olive oils and preserves, plants and flowers, and prepared food to eat there or to go. Lots of sampling too!... More

The shops, cheese, bread, the excellent blue bottle coffee, the hog island oysters, well that is a lovely place. But if you are walking towards Fisherman's wharf, please refraisnt o carry anything. It is a pleasant but long walk. It is OK to visit and to observe the ferry.

A nice place to walk around. There are a lot of little kiosks/shops to try different kinds of foods and a little shopping too. There are breads,baked goods, wine, and ice cream and other foods as well. There are a couple sit down restaurants as well

It's exciting to explore everything in the building, but be sure not to miss your ferry. It's an amazing change from the old days!

Walk around and just let the food envelope you. Definitely one of the greatest places to see. All kind of delicatessens from around. Love the idea and the places to have wine, bread and cheeses are just beautiful and delicious. There are a lot of places and very difficult to choose one.

If you only have a little time to visit SF you should visit here as they have local fares from many SF places. We had traveled to many other places before here, but had we only had 24 hours we would def. want to stop here to sample....

Cupcakes, mushrooms, lamb chops, cheese!, olive oil, chocolate! I can't choose between my favorite children. There are so many fantastic choices for a meal and for items to cook at home.
