Went first on a quiet day and impressed with the interior set up and stalls. Returned on market day and wow, what a change, great to walk about the stalls and see the local produce displayed. Well worth the time

Cheeses and meats and delicacies abound. Grab your foodie friends, enjoy some oysters and craft beer, and pick up some quality artisan eats for your next meal. A variety of vendors and restaurants capped by an opportunity to stroll along the waterfront.

Not too far from the Ferry Building, you might want to try Betty Lou's Seafood Grill. In North Beach. Know for Shrimp Louies.

20-30 minutes. As an alternative you can hop on one of the old antique street cars that take you right there.
