The building and farmer market are both fun to visit. It is very busy at times, so the line ups can be daunting, especially the wash=rooms.

Nothing is inexpensive but almost everything is good. Wonderful selection of prepared foods, breads, wines.... even better on Saturday mornings when produce stands line the front and rear of the building. Always a destination when we're in San Francisco

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