Waiting to board the Ferry, we had time before and after to wonder through and about the Embarcadero. Easy to get there and plenty to see and experience - from the produce and flower market on the outside to the many trade shops and kiosks - loved this place.

We walked to the Ferry Building from our hotel and got our Blue Bottle coffee and Italian custard donuts and sat on a bench with a view of the bay. Definitely worth checking out, come hungry.

Fun fun fun to go to the ferry building marketplace especially on Saturday when the farmers market is happening. There is music and lots and lots of great fresh food. We are so glad that we came here. It gave us a real feel for Northern California cuisine. We ate at the Prather Ranch meat company - a burger and... More

We love this place simply because of its beauty- the architectural design of the building. More so, we enjoy just walking in the area with a view of the bay, there are local stores that sells interesting stuffs. Very San Francisco! A place to relax and unwind with a glass or even a bottle of wine.

I loved it here. You have a great market in a lovely old building with great produce, well thought and prepared food and I particularly enjoyed the wine bar too. It's not big but you could easily spend a lot of time here enjoying all it had to offer.

It's definitely a nice place to visit and relax. There are many small boutiques shops. Especially, you should grab a cup of coffee latte from the well known cafe - Blue Bottle. It tastes so good.

Every time we're in San Francisco we go here just to have a glass of wine and people watch. Definitely something to check out anytime you're visiting San Francisco. There is a great wine bar in the middle so if you enjoy wine it's a good place to sit. Also, there is a great farmers market Saturday mornings in front... More

An array of specialty shops to delight the senses nestled within the historic ferry building. Many food and snacking choices including a completely gluten-free bakery. Just steps from the bayfront and ferry dock. Great anytime of day but especially morning.

Started with empanadas. Followed with fish sandwiches. Ice cream and coffee. Brought home bread, wine and cheese. Sounds like a perfect afternoon.
