  • The Ferry Building is very popular, and I recommend it to anyone who is visiting San Francisco. They've got great restaurants (Slanted Door, MarketBar) and a morning farmer's market a few times a week
  • Opening in 1898, The Marketplace provides a distinctive space for bringing together the greater Bay Area's agricultural wealth and renowned specialty food purveyors under one roof.
  • Our favorite thing to do on nice days is get a round-trip ferry ticket to Angel Island, buy a beer on the boat, and sun on the upper deck until the ferry gets back to SF.
  • Grab a Blue Bottle coffee, some Cowgirl cheese, Boccalone meats, Acme bread, and sweets from Miette. The Saturday farmers market is stellar. - Green Guide Editor
  • Architecturally, the clock tower was modeled after the 12th century Giralda bell tower in Seville, Spain.
  • With all the local produce, cheese, meats, Vietnamese food, Japanese food, seafood, it represents the incredible bounty San Francisco has access to. Samantha Brown
  • A "must-see" for every foodie whether you live locally or visit from out of town!
  • Local purveyors, hawking everything from cheese and chocolate to cupcakes, line the arcades of this historic waterfront building; the citys best farmers market sets up out front three days a week.
  • Best farmer's market in the country, hands down. -Preeti Mistry, Top Chef
  • Must have: Blue Bottle Coffee. Visit the Farmer's Market on a Saturday morning to sample local produce and grab fresh flowers or chocolates from Recchiuti Confections for your sweetheart. #vday
  • Get coffee at Blue Bottle. Take it out back and sit at one of the benches looking out onto the Bay. Sip slowly, enjoy, and remember why you moved here in the first place.
  • Among the best gourmet offerings? Divine chocolate sables at Miette Patisserie, fresh-baked sourdough levain from Acme Bread, and Mt. Tam triple-cream cheese at Cowgirl Creamery.
