We love to visit the farmer's market on Saturdays. You should go early because it gets crowded. You can do your shopping for the week or just people watch over a cup of coffee at the Blue Bottle.

Take a little time to walk through the Ferry building. Stop at the cheese store for a tasting of delicious cheese then on to the wine store for some wine tasting. If you are hungry there are some nice restaurants to stop in and have a bite to eat. Located on San Francisco Bay it is an ideal place to... More

The SF Ferry Market place is a great destination for lunch or for those gourmet grocery items you want. Try to visit on a Saturday morning while the farmers market is in full swing.

We visit here at least twice a month. The Farmer's Market on Saturday is fantastic. We love all the vendors and shops in the Ferry Building. You can grab a snack, sit on a bench and watch the day go by on the Bay side of the building. There are many delights in store for the foodie. We highly recommend... More

Top quality artisan foods and gifts - not cheap but high quality and unique foods and gifts. Nothing there for kids.

Nice coffee, organic fruit market, milletes cake shop and Bouli restaurant. Bluebottle cafe makes a decent barister coffee but ask for a double shot if you like it 'normal' Aussie strength.

This building is lovely and convenient, but it's also an absolute and unabashed tourist trap which seems to mark everything up by about double so that while you can find very nice avocados and artisanal cheeses, they tend to be double what they are at a regular market. It's nice to window shop in, but I would never actually buy... More

We had the pleasure of taking a ferry back to SF from Napa. The building is functional for commuters and also includes unique shops for visitors. The clock tower is a great photo op too.

The ferry building has some cute shops and some tasty eateries. It is a good place to stop for a quick lunch. (Less of a selection for breakfast and dinner)
