The best food in the city! – The farmers market at the Ferry building is the best farmers market I have ever been to...all local organic and sustainable products..great vendors in the ferry building..the Golden Gate Meat Company is the best..they are the distributor to the fine dining restuarants in San Francisco..all thier products are hormone-antibiotic free, local and free range..and the staff at their shop in the ferry building are so helpful with tips that make their product come out perfect!
My favorite attraction in the city – Saturday morning farmer's market is my favorite thing to do in the city. Our out-of-town visitors love it and we love lazily strolling around tasting the bounty of our land. (Make sure you try Roli Roti meats!) I also go to the ferry bldg weekdays to have a lovely lunch, that is as slow or fast as I make it. I always cap off the meal with chocolates from Recchiuti.
Great Place to Hang Out – It's become a Sunday pastime for me and my husband to walk to the Ferry Bldg and get a bottle of wine, cheese from Cowgirl creamery and ACME Bread!! It's the perfect way to end the weekend!!
Beautiful views, clean area, and great place to take out-of-towners!
Fun times! – I love walking around the Embarcadero and then coming here to enjoy the delicious food, drink and wonderful produce in this place!
If it was a bit cheaper, I would definitely give this place a full "10". Even so, it's a great place to bring out-of-town guests or to enjoy a Saturday morning date. Going on sunny days can be a bit warm, but partly cloudy days are just perfect.
And here's another tip (specifically about the farmer's market on Saturdays) - Even though, I'm sure the food is probably fine there, I've experienced terrible customer service at the Prather Ranch farmer's market booth several times and would definitely not recommend going there. There are a lot of other more friendly (and more delicious?) places to order and enjoy tasty food!
This historic landmark has been renovated to house a marketplace and revitalize the waterfront. – The Background
Located at the foot of Market Street on the Embarcadero, many of the city's parades, political rallies and special events begin here. A busy farmers' market began operating here in April 2003. Built in 1898, the structure was damaged in the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes. Its famous 230-foot-tall clock tower greets all those who enter San Francisco from the east. The facility still serves as a working port for commuters taking the Golden Gate Ferry from other parts of the Bay Area.
The marketplace is housed in the 660-foot-long Grand Nave of the building featuring a variety of specialty food shops such as Hog Island Oyster Company, Peet's Coffee & Tea and MarketBar (a lunch and dinner venue). The brick and terra-cotta features have been painstakingly restored and massive skylights provide an open-air feel.
