If you are going to San Francisco, be sure to plan your trip to be there on Saturday morning. The farmer's market at the Ferry Building has to be one of the best in the world. The Ferry Building itself has assembled some of the best restaurants, shops, and attractions in any indoor setting. On Saturdays the Building is completely... More

From fresh produce to cheese, from meats to flowers, from Mexican to Indian food stands, you will be on sensory overload. If I lived here, I'd shop every Saturday. So many season vegetables, I wouldn't know how to limit my purchases. The Brussels sprouts today were available on or off the stalk. Although I'm not a fan of fingerling potatoes,... More

This is a lot of fun. We enjoyed all the street vendors for food, produce, and crafts. We went on two different occassions. There is definitely a lot more going on on Saturdays. Worth a stop. An easy walk from the end of the California Cable Car Line.

During recent stop over, stumbled into this awesome even on a saturday. Everything, everything was top quality. Loved watching the "locals" buy their goodies. The rotisserie chicken booth was excellent. Inside stores are fun, but outside is most excellent. Amazing selection of food to take home and food to munch on. Will plan next SF visit around the farmer's market.

While the food and other shops in the Ferry Building are nice the Farmers Market, went on Saturday was amazing. The bounty from the California land is outrageous. Suggest you take trolley/buses along Embarcadero.
