We envision the Ferry Building Marketplace as a vibrant gathering of local farmers, artisan producers, and independently owned and operated food businesses and the customers they serve.
The Ferry Building is very popular, and I recommend it to anyone who is visiting San Francisco. They've got great restaurants (Slanted Door, MarketBar) and a morning farmer's market a few times a week
Opening in 1898, The Marketplace provides a distinctive space for bringing together the greater Bay Area's agricultural wealth and renowned specialty food purveyors under one roof.
Best farmer's market in the country, hands down. -Preeti Mistry, Top Chef
With all the local produce, cheese, meats, Vietnamese food, Japanese food, seafood, it represents the incredible bounty San Francisco has access to. – Samantha Brown
Architecturally, the clock tower was modeled after the 12th century Giralda bell tower in Seville, Spain.
Must have: Blue Bottle Coffee. Visit the Farmer's Market on a Saturday morning to sample local produce and grab fresh flowers or chocolates from Recchiuti Confections for your sweetheart. #vday

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.
Great place to kill some time, enjoy the weather, have some good coffee and devour some tasty food.
Go walk around the Saturday Farmer's Market in the morning, eat some sample produce, and grab a bite from any of the food vendors.
Get coffee at Blue Bottle. Take it out back and sit at one of the benches looking out onto the Bay. Sip slowly, enjoy, and remember why you moved here in the first 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

Such a relaxing place to have GREAT food, watch the ferries coming and going, and enjoy the Bay.
