We always make it a point to visit the Ferry Building Marketplace when in SF. Interesting shops and time well spent.

Fun for shopping
Sep 2021
Don’t go too early, with Covid, things don’t open until 10-11. There are fun shops, bakeries, and this is one of the few places in town to get a senior clipper card.

You can also catch a ferry to Sausalito. Once a week there’s a farmers market out front that opens at 10. It’s an easy stop with the public transportation.

Great place with lots of food options

A great place along the shore to enjoy lots of amazing foods. We were here for the Saturday Farmers market and saw lots of great looking food’s from many local places. Great place to pass a Saturday morning eating, drinking, and shopping through and around an iconic place.

Love going to this San Francisco icon

We love stopping here to get our Acme Bread (most restaurants use), our olive oils and vinegars farm Stonehouse Olive Oil, have lunch at a favorite, Hot Island Oyster.

Prior to Covid, there were many more thriving stores due to many commuters via ferries, tourists and others visiting. Sadly, some like Sur la table, another favorite has closed. So had Slanted Door I believe temporarily which had amazing food!!

Check out the history of this building. Prior to the big '89 earthquake, this was pretty run down as there were NO restaurants along the water due to the freeway that went along Embarcadero. Once it was never put back, the waterfront became amazing!

We all believe it'll come back as it was if not better, but still a great place to visit & stroll around.

Nice place to walk through

This building has multiple places to buy things like artisan coffee, cheeses, and soaps. Lots of places outside to eat and drink by the water.

Not as big as it looks
Aug 2021
Based on the outside I thought the inside would be full of markets and vendors from end to end, but I was surprised to see it really wasn't that large in the inside and there weren't that many vendors. The views outside are really nice for looking at the ferries and the Oakland bridge.

Nice place to stroll along the waterfront

The Ferry Building is a pier for ferry boats that go out to Sausalito and other places. There are some shops and restaurants there that are quaint and overpriced. The view is nice here and it is a great place for a nice stroll.

We really enjoyed visiting the Ferry Building. My daughter was so excited to see that Cheese Quakes is a real place! We're huge Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist fans so seeing something mentioned on the show was really fun. And the cheesequakes are delicious! So glad we found them.

Always a Treat!

We just returned from SF with two Saturdays at the Ferry Building and we always love it here. We usually plan our visits around the Farmers Market to stock up on fruit and enjoy the food trucks. The market was very crowded though there were not as many vendors as we remembered from years past. The line to Roli Roti (porchetta sandwiches) was only one mile instead of two. :-) We missed the free samples of in season fruit they used to have, but understand that is a casualty of Covid.
Inside the Ferry Buildings, most shops are now open and were doing brisk business. Since it is a terminal, masks are required inside.
It’s a great place to grab coffee from Blue Bottle or Red Bay with a yummy from Acme bread or Delica and watch the ferry traffic outside.

The mask mandate lifted 2 days AFTER our visit. The only things open were the restaurants. We wanted to try Gott Road Stand. My husband enjoyed his hamburger. Sitting outside people watching was fun.
