Ferry Building Marketplace, San Francisco

4.5
Located inside a landmark building designed by architect A. Page Brown in the Beaux Arts style, Ferry Building Marketplace takes up the entire ground floor, the former baggage handling area of a ferry terminal. At its completion in 1898, this building was the largest project ever undertaken in the city. Today, the marketplace attracts foodies from around the country with its small shops selling everything from expensive mushrooms and sourdough bread to award-winning wines, cheeses, and chocolate cupcakes. The plaza just outside the building hosts local farmers and merchants selling organic produce grown in the area, as well as fast foods like burgers, pizzas, and tacos. Don't miss a stop at one of the marketplace restaurants, serving fresh seafood dishes and signature cocktails.

  • The Ferry Building is such a fun place to visit! It’s loaded with shops and restaurants and has a little something for everyone. This is a great place to pick up culinary delights that are authentic to the area. On Saturdays, a farmers market here offers fresh produce and treats from around Northern California. I would especially recommend trying some of the fresh-squeezed juices. Shop, eat, people watch... you can do it all here!
  • Love it all kinds of food restaurants little shops I love coming in here I always find something also that piques my interest. This time I bought some dry seasonings to add to olive oil for French bread dipping they have samples to try of everything I was a little hesitant about a coffee one but tried it DELISH! SF marker bar for breakfast or lunch dinner yummy or just a appetizer or drink enjoy outside if you want I love it! Oh lobster crab roll! Try it!!!😍😍😍
  • We go on Saturdays whenever I'm free and don't have open house to check the Ferry Plaza farmer's market. There is this Arabic street food with fresh bread that they bake on the spot. I love it. I pick the veggie wrap with an orange blossom & lemon sorbet. It's heaven.
  • What a beautiful Ferry Terminal with such great restaurants and shops. The ambiance is a must experience. The architecture is a sight to see inside the building. It's always bustling with people and all the vendors are so very nice. This place will definitely be one of my favorite places to pass through anytime I'm in SF. "Meet me at the Ferry Building"
  • Many unique shops and various street vendors. I enjoyed seeing items I had never heard of before and having the chance to try new things. It was a marvelous experience and met people from all over the world. There was also street performers which added to the whole SF flavor. I recommend the experience.
