    Come with an empty stomach to this nice and big market where you can find a good selection of food, drinks and local products. A place you should not miss in San Francisco!

    The plan: Marla's for a pastry, Blue Bottle for a NoLa coffee. Then the cheese monger. Take a number, get 1:1 service. Then bread. Then the date guy outside on the south side. That's the blueprint.

    Crowded, overpriced and snobby vendors make this an also-ran. Spend less and get the same at Whole Foods or Trader Joes

    They have great food at the farmers market. If you are looking for a roast pork sandwich or roast chicken stop by Roti Roti. ITS AMAZING

    The line for the restrooms on Saturdays is hellacious. Little known secret: there are restrooms upstairs that are almost always empty.

    This market is perfect for tourists and locals alike. The fresh produce here is fantastic. The strawberries are phenomenal and the meats are next level.

    Get some strawberries and your drink of choice, then sit outside on the bay side and watch the world go by.

    Try going to the bathroom before you get here. There's always a long queue - especially for women. If not, give yourself a few minutes to account for queuing.

    This is a Saturday only market and I'd go there for the free samplers and festive environment. Eagerly went to this stall hoping it has something to do with cricket - the game!! No it's edible insects

    Even though it is touristy, it's also a great food place for locals. Packed with the greatest SF local food vendors, no better place than here to experience the SF food scene.

    Walk around once to snack on samples, then again for the food trucks/tents, and then finally to grab coffee and buy fresh food from local merchants and farmers.

    Everything's great. You can go wrong, unless you didn't get a dozen oysters on your way out. That would be an epic fail.

    Great farmers market! The lox at Cap'n Mike's Holy Smoke is amazing, and of course we picked up some Blue Bottle Coffee. Lots of samples, too!

    Early Saturday morning breakfast ritual--delicious food from one of the many food stalls. Primavera, Hayes Street Grill and Hog Island Oysters are my favorites.

    The Oysters are to die for, melt in your mouth. Get a coffee from Blue Bottle and take in all the wonderful shops.

    Amazing place! Perfect for brunch and lunch, loads of organic and fresh food options, just by the bay inside a beautiful historic building (Ferry building) in pier 1! Strongly recommended!

    A must on Tues/Thurs/Sats for foodies. Visit the food trucks, fresh meat and produce stands, or stop into the ferry building for some blue bottle coffee and a waffle, cheese, wine, honey, the works.

    If you are craving Blue Bottle Coffee on those crowded days, head outside to the south side of the market - they have a kiosk outside, as well.

    Latte from Blue Bottle coffee (worth the wait and the line moss fast) and a pancake from Prather's ranch = heaven. Happy Saturday!

    The pastrami Reuben from Wise Sons Jewish Deli on Thursdays is easily the best Reuben in Northern California. Canter's in LA is the only other place on the West Coast that even compares with it.

    Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Great food truck-esque mobile made to order vendors, as well as more traditional produce and packaged goods.

    There's a bathroom on the second floor that never has a line. Go up the main stairs outside and ask the guard to point you in the right direction!

    The highlight of my week when I worked near Embarcadero. Don't leave San Francisco without a visit to the farmers market and grab some fresh produce – open Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday.
