“A MUST when in SF!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

If you LOVE food, this is a MUST when you visit San Francisco. A wonderful variety of fresh produce, delicious cheeses, lucious baked goods and food vendors that cater to all palates! Every Saturday tourists and locals flock to this Farmer's Market which is located at the Ferry Building. Tons of cool restaurants to people watch from and samples galore. The weather was absolutely perfect that weekend with lots of sunshine. Spectacular views of the Bay, bridge, Treasure Island and Alcatraz. Fisherman's Wharf is also nearby and walking distance. Plenty to do whether you are with family, friends or solo!

I have been coming to the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market ever since I lived in SF many years ago. This is a must see place where you can shop for some very good items, especially if you are going to cook. They have a dairy, meat butcher, bakery, vegetable and flower vendors. This is the best of San Francisco. This is located at the "Ferry"building at Market and Embaradaro. This is easy to get to by Muni or the "F"Street Car (down Market Street)

“Fun place to walk around!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We spent a couple of hours walking around here just taking in the sights and sounds of a Farmer's Market - oh and taking in the food too! :-) Really great fresh produce, jams, jellies, flowers, etc. and plenty of samples to be had. Across the Embarcadaro from the market it a plaza where several artistists set up their tents to display and sell their wares, which was fun to walk through, too! There are several street musicians and were also some BMX bikers providing entertainment. It made for a ncie morning!
