Many good options to buy food, drinks, etc I liked the style and also the layout. It’s relatively close to different points of interest and hotels. It is also the beginning of the walk you can take by the bay, next to the ocean

Lots of interesting food, grocery, wine, and gift shops. Easy to get to, only a few minutes walk from Embarcadero Station. Clean restrooms and best of all it contains Hog Island Oyster Co.

The Ferry Terminal Market, while filled with tourists, is also filled with locals picking up something delicious. While the views of the Oakland Bridge out back are stunning, the real reason to go is to sample California cuisine and produce. On Saturday, a truly lovely...More

This place is awesome. Real SF people go there to shop and North and East Bay people commute to and from there all the time. The farmers market around the ferry building is amazing and not to be missed. Even if you don’t hit a...More

I recommend you park & walk or take the cable car for ease to Ferry Building. Trying to park close will be hectic & expensive.
