A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Great food, people watching, street entertainment, arts and crafts, and view of the Bay bridge.

Nice, but relatively small market. Reminds me of Boston's Quincy Market, but smaller. Good choice of food and drinks and specialty food.

Not too large - really good variety of food and drink available - had a lovely home-made blueberry muffin

The Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market was awesome, the sights, sounds, food choices and people watching were all amazing. They had some excellent goat cheeses, food stands, any kind of produce you could want and you are also right near the Embarcadero which is a shopping destination. A definite must see in San Francisco!

Have never seen so much gorgeous food and very inexpensive! The fruit was incredible and I bought a bunch to bring back for a snack at the hotel. Loved all the artisans and the set up. You are lucky if you are local! Go as early as you can- crowd gets bigger and bigger.

Visited a few times during our 3 day visit - the best visit was Saturday when the farmers market was on. Absolutely brilliant. We also stopped for a drink at Market Bar on our first night, and were able to sit outside and people watch along the Embarcadero. Good options for breakfast as well.

So disappointed here, we had heard that it was touristy but didn't expect it to be so down at heel. Lots of crazies around, clearly not on this planet, we didn't stay long here

Visited on a Saturday on the way to a baseball game. Fantastic selection of eateries and shops. Was absolutely packed and then quietened down. Would suggest walking through enjoying the experience and sampling. Then choose what you are going to eat. Lots of favourites. Loved Humphrey Slocombe, Blue Bottle Coffee, Dandelion Chocolate and Cowgirl Creamery. So much more too! Don't... More

We loved our Saturday morning exploring the market place. We caught the trolley, which was really pleasant - as parking a car would probably have been pretty impossible. The food was plentiful - we sampled and bought both sweet and savoury delights. If I lived in San Francisco I would come here regularly to buy the amazing produce. Don't miss... More

We come from a city with great farmer's markets, so I was skeptical this would be a good use of time. Totally had it wrong. The market on a Saturday morning is super fun. Ferry Plaza is fun as it is, but combined with a huge Farmer's Market, it is superb. Plenty of really good food, coffee and juices. The... More
