The Ferry Building is an occasional Saturday morning hangout for us and it is always a fun social experience. An incredibily diverse collection of locals and visitors enjoying an eclectic array of vendors; from the restaurants and shops inside to the dozens of booths outside offering incredible and often hard-to-find produce as well as local bakeries and meat/fish and dairies. You can park nearby or arrive from Vallejo or Oakland via ferry. Visiting the marketplace on a Saturday morning affords you a great sense of the early pulse of the city.

Wonderful place to visit even if you're on vacation and aren't buying fresh produce. If you are in San Francisco on a Saturday, consider a visit to the Ferry Building. As you approach from Market Street you will find artisans selling their handicrafts, a great place to buy a souvenir. The Farmer's Market itself has all kind of food vendors. All of them serve fantastic food. I particularly like the raw oysters. Find a place to sit and enjoy the view of the bay under the Bay Bridge. Afterward consider a ferry ride to Sausalito or a walk down the embarcadero to Fisherman's Wharf. If you are feeling energetic you can walk all the way to the Civil War Fort under the Golden Gate Bridge.

Great place to visit. On the inside, there are some restaurants and more high end stores selling local goods. On the outside, a farmer's market with all local products and good food as well. The building itself is quite interesting too. Definitely recommended.

This definitely is one of my favorite places to visit on a Saturday morning. Fresh fruit, veggies, spices, and pastries galore. It’s a great place to enjoy a breakfast, a savory treat, or additional shopping inside the Ferry Plaza building. Definitely a magnet for foodies and photographers!

It was quite a long walk along the Embarcadero to the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market from where our cruise ship docked. Unfortunately, vendors were closing up on Tuesday early afternoon, when we arrived. Too bad that we didn't go earlier. Instead, we checked out the Ferry Building shops.

Outdoor market. We didn’t see light outside that we really want to buy. We did up going inside to find more to eat.

It was still A bustling spot on a Saturday, but then that would be expected.

Lots of places to pick from inside to eat until your hearts content.

I’ve travelled the world and always head to local markets. This one holds its own amongst the best. Located centrally, you can be sure to find the most beautiful produce in the area. Whether you’re after fliers, meat, seafood,
Mushrooms, strawberries, peaches, cheese, vegetables or more, then this is the place to come. Plenty of take away eateries as well, something for everyone. Disability access is good. Take your time to stroll the stalls and chat the the stall holders. Well worth a visit.

This Farmer’s Market is located across the Ferry Building and had very interesting stalls which were selling varieties of produce. Certainly worth visiting.

The Ferry building has nice restaurants and for eample wine bars to enjoy your time. The farmer's market is on Tue, Thu and Saturdays. Shop for fresh greens and others groceries and enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants, or go for a picnic outside on the plaza!

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 surrounded outside by farmers and restaurants and bakeries and coffee vendors. You will find every fruit, vegetable, cheese, meat, seafood, sauce, spice, baked good, soup, olive oil, or other food item you can imagine. The chefs of all of San Francisco's finest restaurants are at the market circulating with their carts. Celebrities are in the crowd incognito and families with dogs are abundant. Twenty to thirty local restaurants set up field kitchens and serve every item you could want for breakfast or lunch. Street musicians play, and the overall hubbub is festive and fun. Don't miss it! You will want to return again and again. Our adult children visit there almost every weekend they are in town.
