We happened upon this marketplace in the Ferry Building on our way to get a nice view of the Bay Bridge and we loved it! There are a ton of independent merchants here, from a honey stand to ceramic pottery to a wine bar and book shop. It was fun to peruse the different mini-storefronts, and we got some great... More

If you are visiting SF, you should go to the Ferry Building. There are artisanal shops, unique stores, and a great local vibe. Unlike many tourist destinations in The City, locals actually go to the Ferry Building to shop and have lunch or coffee. For a powerful pick-me-up, be sure to hit Blue Bottle Coffee. It is strong and delicious.

We always love visiting the ferry building when visiting SF. This time we stayed right across the street at Harbor Court Hotel, which was super convenient for eating in the Ferry building and checking out the amazing farmers market. Check it out!

Went on a Saturday morning. By 10.30 it was really busy but I'm a good way. Lots of people out exploring and enjoying themselves. Really interesting food market. Had a great energy. Thoroughly recommend.

Many restaurants and grocery stores inside the ferry building. Good destination for architecture lovers. If you are early, you can get fresh oysters to taste.

I go here almost every time I visit San Francisco, because it represents a concentrate of many of the fine things you can buy in this magical city all under one expansive roof and for rather dear prices. Still, even if you can't afford the carved wooden salad bowls, tightly woven linens, or Le Crueset cookware, you can at least... More
