Really great market by the water. Lots of different options to purchase goods to take home or enjoy there. Many even have samples available. There’s also a nice bookshop and access to the boardwalk behind the building.

Sure, it may sound touristy, but for good reason. It's a wonderful indoor space for food, shopping, and people watching, especially on a rainy day. The coffee and beer options make for a nice linger, too.

We enjoyed a sunny afternoon outside and ate lunch at Gotts. It was okay... probably should have ordered something different. And we enjoyed checking on all the food and merchandise inside. The patio at Gotts was perfect on our sunny day.

Worth the stroll around. Nice market square, shops, sights, restaurants , close to cable car stop. And there is a ice skating rink across the street.

Always a good place for great local artisans and their foods. Organic, farm to table. Fresh fish and don't forget the sour dough bread!

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