This place had an upscale vibe, lots of specialty shops, and good places to eat. It's also a good place to take pictures of the San Francisco Bay bridge. On Saturday mornings, this place has all kinds of booths outside of the Ferry Building in the front and even more in the back. They sell gourmet cheese, almond brittle, ice... More

A great indoor food market selling quality food. Some eateries and foodie shopping made it a great discovery. Not so touristy. San Francisco at its best.

Loved this area (other than the crowds) Lots of restaurants and pubs to choose from, great views, good food. Farmers Market items and just outside across the street, lots of vendors selling handmade items ranging from artwork to knitted hats and scarves

I visited the market on a Sunday when the farmer's market was positioned outside. Good variety, very vibes, even more expensive! Enjoy.

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.
