The Ferry Building Marketplace is very clean with many restaurants and shops. My favorite place there is the Ice Cream shop. The best part about this building is the location by the water. The pier is very clean with adiquite seating to enjoy the Bay.

Lots of shops and restaurants. Great marketplace with lots of local products and foodstuffs. Nice to stop in and pick up a bottle of wine, artisan cheeses, sourdough, etc. Peet's Coffee is there, of course, and nice to have an ice cream cone and admire...More

After seeing such good reviews we called in for a visit. There wasn't much to see in my opinion, limited selection of food options and a bit boring.

Love coming here. Great marketplace with everything from local produced honey to locally growen lavender. There are a number of food stalls, each different to the other. Something for everyone.

I've been here a few times and always found something to buy, even though I may have gone there just to meet someone for lunch, for example. The stores are diverse and the restaurants are very good (albeit a bit expensive; think of the rent!)....More

A great selection of food and drink places all with their own unique charms. Worth going during the day as most of the shops shut around dinner time.

Spent an interesting hour in and out of the Ferry Building. Lots of small shops selling good things - not tourist rubbish. Some great food stores - mushrooms in particular was fascinating. Lots of folk around getting ferries out. Plenty of places to eat and...More

We are returning to Pier 27 San Francisco at the end of a cruise and our flight isn't until late afternoon. Does anyone know if we can leave our luggage anywhere and suggest something to do before going to the airport?

Check with the cruise line's concierge, they will usually hold your bags for a short time - much as a hotel would. you will disembark equally close to Fisherman's Terminal (Pier 39, sea lions, gift shops, great views of... More
