    On The Embarcadero, checkout the marketplace, Blue Bottle Coffee and Pepples Donuts. People watch as workers come and go on the ferries and rush hour time. Great bay views and outdoor dining fun.

    The marketplace has lots of great shops and restaurants in it, and is a nice place to walk around (plus, views of the Bay). And there's a good farmers market on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

    Local purveyors, hawking everything from cheese and chocolate to cupcakes, line the arcades of this historic waterfront building; the city’s best farmers’ market sets up out front three days a week.

    Fresh food, independing purveyors, yummy food outlets, a lovely Sur La Table shop for all your cooking needs (expensive however!) and Hog Island Oyster Co: best indoor food market in the world!?

    If you like nice things, like gelato, mid-century pottery, cured meat, milk, chocolate, olive oli, oysters, Vietnamese food, coffee, books, views of the Bay, or architecture, you should visit here.

    This indoor marketplace features a wide selection of food and drink options, from full service restaurants to takeaway counters. Local California produce and products are the star.

    It's like these guys were reading our journal when they selected the tenants – Cowgirl Creamery, Hog Island Oysters, Boccalone Salumeria, beekind, and Rancho Gordo among a few of our favorites.

    What I like best about the ferry building is I don't have to choose. I can snack on Hog Island Oysters AND get a Roli Roti sando AND eat cowgirl creamery cheese AND get a geranium macaron at Miette.

    Buy monthly Muni/Clipper cards here. Go to Cowgirl Creamery & Acme for cheese & bread. Pick up coffee at Blue Bottle. For dessert, try the rose macaron from Miette or oranges from Twin Girls Farm.

    They have a mosaic of the Seal of California on the second floor. Just ask the security guard nicely and they'll let you through to take a picture :)

    Probably the single best place for a tourist to get an understanding of Northern California foodie, hipster, coffee, and ethnic culture all in one spot. Beautiful architecture and bay front spot.

    The Ferry Building has a lot of good vendors for unique and delicious food. The little bad thing is the prices for the goods are getting expensive. My "secret spot" there has a great view 😀

    The smell of coffee surrounding inside of the entire building took me back to that exact time I've been to Italy for the first time as a 7 years-old kid. Lovely setting, lovely ambiance & atmosphere.

    Lots of things to see and many eateries. Can eat inside the building or take outside and sit on the bench and eat. Be careful of the birds trying to beg for food. Don’t feed them!

    Go on a day with a farmer's market to enjoy local produce and walk through the back area to grab a great view of the Bay Bridge.

    Great variety of local, healthier options. It gets pretty busy so the sit-down restaurants usually have wait times unless you make a reservation, but usually not too long and worth it.

    A place you can't miss in the city. Love the atmosphere here. Take a pastry a ACME Bakery, a drip at Blue Bottle, and go sit outside on the waterfront. Amazing.

    Take your time to enjoy it all from one end of the building to the other and everything in between. It's a fantastic place, especially if your a foodie or lover of old buildings. The place is Yar!

    Oysters, the Imperial Tea Court, Blue Bottle, it's an SF staple. Looking for a snack before the wedding, get the porchetta sandwich at the rolling roti.

    Lots of little artisanal shops inside as well as some more established places (Peet's Coffee). Easily accessible from public transportation. Also easy to get ferry tickets etc.

    Great place to start your day. Coffee and waffle at Blue Bottle if you have somewhere to be, breakfast sandwich or porridge at Il Cane Rosso if you don't.

    My favorite lunch in the city is a wheel of Mt. Tam or Red Hawk cheese from Cowgirl Creamery and an onion slab or baguette from Acme Bread Co.

    Walk the whole thing before you make a food decision outside too bc some locations face the bay and some the middle. except at noon. Then decide FAST before it gets crazy.

    What a great area! I went back constantly! Awesome shops etc. They need to keep the homeless skaters out of the building after hrs to preserve the special place.

    Grab a Blue Bottle coffee, some Cowgirl cheese, Boccalone meats, Acme bread, and sweets from Miette. The Saturday farmers’ market is stellar. - Green Guide Editor

    Always take the relatives by here when they are In town. Idea is to starting a fairy from Alameda another goto the fairy building. Get a bicycle taxi and go down to fisherman's wharf or union square

    Always a pleasure visiting the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero by way of SF Bay Ferry boat from Vallejo to San Francisco. Interesting but very expensive dining places. Friendly people.

    Reminds me of Quincy market. Basically a large indoor farmers market with permanent vendors and higher prices. Great place to bring out of town guests.
