    Come Hungry!

    by klasher Written Apr 19, 2011

    We walked to the Ferry Marketplace from Fisherman's Wharf at 8:30 and it took us about 30 minutes along the Embarcardo. We sat down to eat at the Market Cafe as we watched people arriving to the Busy Farmers Market held every Saturday. My husband wanted Pancakes, so we missed out on the food booths, but we had a great time enjoying the morning with the locals.

    Ferry Building Market Place

    Breakfast was gathered at the excellent Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market. We stocked up on fruit and muffins, with the odd cinnamon whirl thrown in. We we going to walk up to Coit Tower and so needed the supplies.

    If you love browsing in food markets like I do, then make your way to the Ferry Building on a Tuesday (10am-2pm) or a Saturday (8am-2pm) for the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. The market has been running since 1993, and is very popular on a Saturday when around 15,000 shoppers stop by.

    We visited at around 9am on a Saturday morning and the market was in full swing. There are stalls selling hot food and coffee, and we had breakfast there. We bought coffee from the Blue Bottle Coffee Co - it was worth the queue. Our breakfast was from Rose Pistola & Rose's Café - we had an Egg Sandwich and some Brioche French Toast. Both were tasty, with the only negative been there are limited places to sit and eat your food.

    After eating, we took a stroll through the market stalls and were hit by the strong aromas of the fresh fruit and veg, and the look and quality of the produce - all seemed to be top class.

    Shopping peppers at the Ferry Plaza Farmers' Mkt

    A Farmers' Market in a big city like San Francisco?? Go Figure!

    But it's true, and it's one of the BEST!! The Ferry Building Marketplace is a collection of shops, restaurants, boutiques, and unique stores that will delight ALL of your senses. You'll find the Far West Fungi shop (mushrooms), the San Francisco Fish Company, and the Tsar Nicoulai Caviar Cafe, just to name a few.

    Then, on Tuesdays & Saturdays you'll find a WONDERFUL Farmers' Market! You will LOVE it!

    Saturday morning Farmer's Market

    The Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building

    We stopped by the Ferry Building on Saturday morning on the way to the baseball game at AT&T Park. After strolling around, we settled on some smoked salmon burritos and watched the crowds. Great selections, too much to choose from!

    Farmer's Market

    I love to go to the Farmer's Market. It is now hosted outside (front and back) of the Ferry Building along the Embarcadero.

    You will find delights like fresh fruits and vegetables, olive oils, nuts, honey, homemade tomales, Indian food, flowers, cheeses, baked goods, meats, etc. The best part about the Farmer's Market is that almost everyone gives you a taste!

    Tuesday: 10am-2pm
    Thursday: 4pm -8pm
    Saturday: 8am-2pm
    Sunday: 10am-2 pm

    The Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building is a must for anyone who happens to be in the City on Saturday morning. Dozens of vendors bring their various wares; produce, flowers, fish, cheese, chilis, plants, fresh bread, meats, and any assortment of specialty items and the displays are colorful and exciting to see.

    The market is open from 8 to 1:30. Parking can be difficult but it's worth it to browse the area.
