Farmers Market @ the Ferry building: "Excellent food & market shopping" Top 5 Page for this destination San Francisco Shopping Tip by davequ

San Francisco Shopping: 312 reviews and 483 photos


Saturday a.m 1/29/05 my friend Louis gave me a tour of the Farmers market outside in front of the ferry building on the Embarcadero.

Tables with fresh local produce and cheese, etc. outside, and some delicious food stands and stores inside the building & out back on the dock as well. Everything from delicious chocolate to goat cheeses to pastries... etc. you name it. A gourmand (me) or even a gourmet's (Louis) dream.

What to buy: See above. If you like good fresh food, you can find just about everything.

The earlier in the am you arrive, the more locals shopping and the less picked-over the food is. Seems to get more touristy as the afternoon progresses, but I'm a tourist so what the hell do I know.

Dank u well for taking me here Louis.

What to pay: Prices are very affordable, quality imho is very high.

Directions: On the embarcadero just east of the Market St / California St. Cable car turnaround.
Theme: Food and Drink
