Love the re-purposing of this beautiful building!

Great selection of food and nice place for a quick meal, drinks or snack. It's fun to stroll through the food and wares and enjoy the atmosphere.

This is a must visit place in San Francisco! Authentic, great food and local produce vendors. A wonderful atmosphere. Much better than fishermans wharf.

Something for everyone (including clean public toilets!) here - ice cream stalls, gourmet cheese/meat/fish shops, highly rated restaurants or just a place to gaze at the bay.

We stayed very near here, so we ended up walking through several times. They have fun and unique shops and some interesting restaurants. I wouldn't go too far out of my way to visit, but if in the area, you should definitely walk through at least once.

We had no plans Saturday morning but read about Farmers Market at Ferry Building. We walked there from Union Square and loved it. Many permanent and temporary shops, kiosk, and food. Loved people watching and sample food. Located on historic waterfront this is a great way to spend a couple hours.

If you are in SFO, you need to visit this place. Inside they have many shops and restaurants and you will find as many options as you want. Bakery, organic food, seafood, cheese shop, mini markets, and fine dining places too. So they have a place for every budget, for everybody. Buy you food and go outside to eat it... More

A great place to browse in conjunction with a ferry ride or just if you are in the area. Eat a meal, snack or buy fresh food, cheeses, chocolates etc to take with you or sit watching the bay and munch. Allow some time for the visit

There is so much to entertain you at the San Franciscso Ferry Building if you have a few minutes or an hour, or more! A number of restaurants are there....from affordable to expensive. Gott's Hamburgers and Mijita Mexican Cocina, as well as fresh Empanada's at El Porteno, to Hog Island Oysters and Slanted Door.....Many choices! The gourmet selection is beyond... More

If you want to shop for things other than clothes, than this is a neat place to go. At the back of the building, you can walk out and look at the ferry port and the bay. it is an excellent location at which to start your journey down Embarcadero Street!
