Nicely repurposed public space with the usual collection of specialty food and drink and miscellaneous goods. Seem to be mostly local enterprises.

We walked through this collection of food boutiques on a quiet weekday afternoon. We had some great ice cream at Humphrey Slocombe and some decent (very dirty) oysters at a place a couple stalls down from the oyster company.

One of the must sees when in San Francisco. The beautifully restored building houses a great number of outlets, not all of them catering to (foreign) tourists (as in Fisherman's Wharf).

This is a historic building that is now what I would call a gourmet food mall. It reminds me of Eatily in Chicago and the Public Market in Milwaukee.

A lovely place to eat great food and fresh produce.Enjoy people watching. Great coffee. Take your camera out the back as the view to the bay bridge is not to be missed.

We stumbled upon this place when we hopped off the Big Red tour bus and we were glad we did! It was lunch time and there were more than enough different things to choose from.

My hubs and I took an Uber here in the evening to grab dinner. It's a cute place and I wish we would've spent more time here. I bought lots of stuff from a variety places - like bread, honey, macarons, etc.

Plan to come on a day where there's a famer's market (currently its Tue, Thu and Sat). So many different variety of food to try. Must try the Humphry Slocombe ice creams. Very unique but still 100% yummy flavours.
