On our San Francisco portion of the west coast trip, we ate at the Ferry Building Marketplace and also took the ferry over to Sausalito. The ferry trip and Sausalito were great. The food was great. However, every men's room that I visited at the Ferry Building was completely destroyed. I would say that every men's room in the New... More

Walking into the Ferry Building today is like walking into a "market place melting pot"of everything under the sun! There's a farmers market, restaurants, specialty shops, even a grocery store but on the day of it's opening 1898 it was a whole different ball game. In those days up to 50,000 people a day commuted by Ferry-I can only imagine... More

If you are into food, get here as soon as you can. It's quite simply the best, especially when the farmers market is going too on Saturday. Buy some bread, some cheese at Cow Girl Creamery, sausages from Boccalone, truffles if you're feeling extravagant. Chocolates. And of course a bottle of champagne. Perfect picnic fixings. And don't forget a bag... More

Thinking I'd encounter a tourist trap, I was wrong. Sure there are tourists, like me. But, the local fare, artisan crafts and food boggles the mind. Many samples ranging from gourmet olive oil (McEvoy Ranch, my fave!), cheeses, funghi-mania, honey, Chinese dumplings, bread, sweet treats and much, much more! Bring multiple shopping bags for the fresh produce outside, the beautifully... More

Such an eclectic and awesome group of shops! LOVED the cheese shop and the bread store! We bought our dinner of fresh apps after we had a filling late lunch at the Slanted Door! Fun place to look around, taste and walk off lunch! MUST GO HERE!

I loved this place - there are lots of amazing stalls offering a wide selection of food including deli items, artisan bread, handmade chocolates and fresh vegetables and fruit. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen shop and bought a lot of popcorn related gifts to take home to the UK .

What a neat place! Just as the name implies, you can find a wide variety of food and gift items. We walked the entire place, sampling all types of foods from raw oysters to cheeses to sweets. We did end up at Gott's Hamburgers for lunch.....which was great! Restrooms are at one ends.....long lines!

Consider enjoying the Ferry Building on Saturday mornings when the Farmer's Market is underway. There are lots of interesting products for sale, great food, and a fun atmosphere. In the summer, you can buy fantastic fruit and eat it right from the booths in addition to buying some fantastic breakfast or lunch offerings that you can eat while looking out... More

Clean and lots of choices, seafood, gluten free, beer/wine, sandwiches. The biggest issue is not a lot of seating for the volume of people and the variety of choices so if everyone wants something different to eat it is difficult to coordinate.
