The terminal was clean as no smells no trash, not bad. The Ferry Building itself was huge and very clean, along with restrooms. Has many... More

We only by chance fell upon this building a farmers market was outside on Tuesday. Wow what lovely fruit, cheese and bread. Inside the building again had food, chilli sauces, beauty lotions. I couldn't buy the food as couldn't bring it home.

I visited this place few times during our stay in SF. We used the ferry to Alameda therefore it was "must" to visit this place. In the building are a lot of small food stores and food opportunities. My daughter bought there very tasty cup cake. Anyway, nice architecture and nice shops there. I recommend to visit this place. You... More

We got there early which is a must. The shops, bakeries and restaurants are a great place to take tourists and locals alike.

We first went here at night looking for somewhere to eat and found it all closed! Went back at lunchtime and the place was buzzing. Ice cream store selling unusual flavours, beautiful pottery and specialist food items such as olive oil, pork products and cheeses. A good place to visit for a quick lunch.

However as a tourist who is not buying fresh produce visiting this place on a Sat I was pretty disappointed with the crazy long line-ups for everything (particularly the ladies washrooms). The food stalls and restaurants... More

It's nice to stroll through it and check out all the food stalls but we found everything so expensive that it's a bit off putting. To be honest all of SF is expensive so in hindsight it might be just in line with the going rates.
