Always go here on Saturday for the farmers market. Lots of stalls with a wide variety of products including a beer stall we sampled. Great stores inside the bulding as well.

Good for finding products of every description. We had a snack of great empanadas at one of the stands inside--very tasty. Always a good stop for good glass of wine.

We caught the Sausalito ferry from here. Lots of restaurants and shops in a converted historic building to occupy about an hour.

Local or tourist, the SF Ferry Building Marketplace has a little something for everyone. When we are in a group and can't decide where to eat lunch, we go to the Ferry Building. From a Japanese Deli, fresh authentic Mexican food, hearty sandwiches to swanky...More

Such a fun spot to walk around, shop and eat! Plan to spend a couple of hours here because there's a lot of great restaurants and some of them have a long wait line.
