“love this on weekends!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

This is so fun every weekend. they have the most amazing stalls and samples and my husband and I go over and spend hours there trying different foods and beverages. Love the mexican place with fresh ceviche and tacos. Love all the stalls with the baked goods and different cheeses, salamis, cupcakes and blue bottle coffee. If you grab a bench by the water you can sit there for hours people watching and enjoying the sunshine and beautiful view of the water. tons of fun memories here!!

“Great food and people watching”

I did like the large selection of food and wine, it does close early. Got there at 7pm and most of the shops were closed

“Beautiful setting but always too crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

The Ferry Building is a major tourist attraction with some excellent restaurants, so I shouldn't complain about the crowds, but. . . .
the popularity of it leads to very high prices and somewhat indifferent service. I think it's a great destination when I'm entertaining out-of-town guests, but I don't shop there nor visit often otherwise.

“there are some unique items here.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

At the foot of Market st. on the Embarcadero you will find the marketplace with little shops, foods and clean restrooms. Also the ferry is just behind the building. You can find a little taste of the city here, and people are very friendly.
