I enjoyed looking around this Farmer's Market. There was a nice variety of stalls with lots of unique gift ideas and yummy treats. I recommend skipping breakfast and sampling the delicious variety of small plate options as you make your way around. It was very crowded which made navigating your way around difficult (at times I felt like a salmon... More

I visited on a Saturday as it has the most vendors on this day and opens earlier, though the farmers market is also open on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Plenty of food options both inside and around the outside of the Ferry Plaza building, albeit some were a little expensive. Nonetheless you are paying for quality here, which was worth it... More

Our group took in the farmer's market at the ferry building plaza. All of the group were just amazed by the size of the market with the numerous selection of fresh products. Our group enjoyed the Rotisserie kiosk but were a little late for the pork hocks which were sold out. We had the delicious Porchetta sandwich and a whole... More

I have been to many farmer markets throughout the USA; this is clearly one of the best in the country. Flowers, baked goods, fruits, veggies, eggs, fish, meat, etc. Quality and variety are top notch. Bring your camera and appetite.

I knew this area (and Cap'n Mike's Holy Smoke) was a tourist trap but when I realized that the unit price for the smoked Salmon I purchased was $24.99 per HALF POUND, I was astonished. You have to look closely to realize this and I apparently didn't. I believe the smoked Salmon was top quality, but no way was it... More

Perhaps not as many products as at the largest farmers markets in Europe, but what's available is representative of the agriculture in Northern California - incredibly fresh and healthy. The premises, both at the market proper and inside the ferry terminal, are kept quite clean. Good eating alternatives.

I love this Farmer's Market with its' diverse gourmet food vendors, fresh fruit vendors, vegetables vendors, and beautiful flower vendors. In addition, the Village Market inside the Ferry Building offers a variety of Italian foods, herbs, chocolates, soaps, etc. Plus the multitude of other stores inside the Ferry Building. What's new at the Market is a vendor in the front... More
