Ferry Plaza Farmers Market
San Francisco foodies and local chefs alike flock to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market to peruse stalls bursting with some of Northern California’s finest produce. At the waterfront market, visitors can tempt their taste buds with local goat cheese, fresh-pressed olive oil, organic vegetables, and a variety of ready-to-eat artisanal goods. 

The Basics
Located on San Francisco’s Embarcadero, the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is a picturesque escape from the bustle of city life, whether you want to peruse the colorful stalls, tuck into meals from local food trucks and sit-down restaurants, or just grab coffee and enjoy panoramic views of San Francisco Bay. The gourmet action continues inside the adjacent Ferry Building, where local shops sell foraged wild mushrooms, gold-leafed chocolates, and sustainably farmed Marin County oysters, among other treats. 

For a deep-dive into the market’s culinary scene, explore on a food-tasting tour with an expert guide. Travelers can also rent a bike to explore San Francisco’s waterfront, or combine a farmers market food tour with a visit to Alcatraz Island, home of the prison that once held America’s most notorious criminals. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The market is a must-see for foodies and culture lovers. 
  • The Ferry Building contains restrooms, ATMs, and limited public seating. All facilities are wheelchair-accessible. 
  • The nearest parking lot is at Washington Street and Embarcadero. 

How to Get There
The farmers market is located along the Embarcadero, at the foot of Market Street. It is accessible by road, MUNI, BART, and ferry, and a pleasant 30-minute waterfront stroll from Fisherman’s Wharf. San Francisco’s historic trolley cars (F-line Market) stop directly in front of the building. 

When to Get There
The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is held year-round on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The market is most crowded on Saturday and can be a serious social fest, complete with culinary demos by city chefs and interviews with local farmers. Get there early to avoid crowds, or aim for noon for the full local experience. 

Exploring the Ferry Building 
The historic Ferry Building’s marketplace houses a number of notable purveyors, including Cowgirl Creamery, Frog Hollow Farm, Acme Bread Company, Recchiuti Confections, Miette Patisserie, and Blue Bottle Coffee. Even when the farmers market isn’t open, locals know the Ferry Building is the place to come for gourmet treats and unbeatable bay views.

Getting there is half the fun. My Expedition is more like a Gondola. On stage since age 5, I will entertain you with singing, car karaoke, juggling and stories from my weird and fun life where home ran away from me when I was 15 and I joined the Circus. As a Lyft and Uber driver for 3 years I learned where to go in San Francisco. Testimonials: "Honestly the best ride I’ve ever had. The man has the voice of an angel and the personality of Johnny Carson. Could not recommend a better driver. " "Fantastic driver and extremely entertaining!!!!!"
