So much to see. From sea food to cheese and bread. The market is full of taste and few local organic vegetables to buy and try. This place is a must visit. Also don't forget to walk outside the building where there's also food stalls and vegetables. Pretty view of Bay Bridge.

Very nice ambiance, much better than Fisherman's Wharf. Lots of nice shops. Ferry to the Alcatraz island and Presidio is just outside

expect a crowd on weekends and a line for everything. great selection of food choices but be ready to pay top $$ since this is a tourist destination. I was shocked that one of the stores charge $1.50 for a cup of tap water.

I like to go to the Ferry Building. This time I went for holiday shopping and lunch. Its a fun place to go. There are many different cafes and food/gift stores to go to. I also like the view of the Bay.

Yes this is the place to visit especially on a Saturday. Come empty stomach and leave in an Uber. Great selection of prepared foods and tasting stations that supply adequate quantities of clean toothpicks and small disposable tasting spoons. Lots of people and lots of food, a very fun experience. This is the People's experience of Pier 39.

In the span of 10 days visit, I've visited this place 3 times.. truly enjoyed everything they have in this building. So much choices to eat and snack on. Loved browsing the breads, gourmet supermarket, cheese specialty, seafood, and my most fave is the Humphry Slocombe ice cream!

The market inside the building isn't big but has a few interesting shops with local products and restaurants. There is a farmer's market on Saturdays. The building is beautiful and the main hall holds pictures about its history.

Wonderful assortment of local crafts, foods and treats. Very spacious and well designed. Although parking is a pain unless you go into a parking garage or lot.
