Located inside a landmark building designed by architect A. Page Brown in the Beaux Arts style, Ferry Building Marketplace takes up the entire ground floor, the former baggage handling area of a ferry terminal. At its completion in 1898, this building was the largest project ever undertaken in the city. Today, the marketplace attracts foodies from around the country with its small shops selling everything from expensive mushrooms and sourdough bread to award-winning wines, cheeses, and chocolate cupcakes. The plaza just outside the building hosts local farmers and merchants selling organic produce grown in the area, as well as fast foods like burgers, pizzas, and tacos. Don't miss a stop at one of the marketplace restaurants, serving fresh seafood dishes and signature cocktails.

From exotic fruits to fish (of course, if the water of the bay is only a few meters away) you will find everything your heart desires and you don't indulge in anything, so the one for sale is a feast for the senses!
The Ferry Building history and the location are very wonderful. It is a great Location to visit in San Francisco any day of the week. There are so many Restaurants and Cafes here. It is good place to drink some Coffee. The views of the building is nice and attractive. Here you can get some farmers products such as fruits and vegetables. This is a good place for all ages. If you are visiting San Francisco you should visit this place, I hope you will be satisfied. Enjoy your time here.
Definitely a must visit when in downtown San Francisco. If you can, hit it up on Saturday mornings when the Farmer's Market is right outside of the building. When we visit, we usually stay north of the city and take the Ferry into downtown. A beautiful ride in and a great starting point for a day trip in downtown.
