This is another must see while visiting SF. We went on a Saturday morning for the Farmer's Market. What a treat! Tons of stalls inside and out selling everything local. We had hand made candy, to pork buns to a porchetta sandwich. All delicious and fairly priced. The beautiful flowers, soaps, veggies, etc. were all wonderful. I wished I lived... More

The Ferry Building is a must the next time you are in San Francisco. You will find it near downtown, along the Embarcadero, which follows the piers along San Francisco Bay. It is the old Ferry Building converted into a thriving public market. You are sure to find something here that you will enjoy: from crafts, to food (both for... More

This place has so many places for great food that you will have a hard time deciding where to eat. Cool building with a great location on the water. Grab something to eat and take outside to a nice view.

We love the restaurant and shopping choices here. It is also fun just to browse. Bookshops, restaurants like the Slanted Door, caviar shoppes, wine, meat and fish and so much more. Well worth the visit.

This place is great and a must-see when visiting San Francisco. The ferry building has been re-purposed to house a network of cute indoor stalls, shops and restaurants. You can find everything from fresh flowers to oysters, and from great cheeses and deli items to tasty, salted pig parts! We came here to have fantastically fresh oysters at the Hog... More

The first day I had the french toast with pecans on them and absolutely delicious. The next day I had the Eggs Benedict. Both breakfasts were absolutely delicious and since it was right across the street from my hotel was so much better than room service. Waitstaff were excellent and I ate outside one day and inside the other. Both... More

I've visited the ferry building marketplace hundreds of time and still enjoy the ambience and selection of food. Serve Blue Bottle coffee, some good organic food. Nice book shop and a great place to hang out ahead of catching a ferry.

A must go for those who wants to grab some good and fresh local produce. Breakfast served is very hearty and wholesome. Ate a pulled pork sandwich, super yums! Coffee Qs are very long so be prepared to wait for the caffeine. Oysters looked really fresh but not brave to take for breakfast unless you have a strong stomach. Drivers... More
