The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is a certified farmers market and has been a year-round market since 1993. On Saturday’s, the market is held both in front of the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero and on the rear plaza overlooking the Bay. A wealth of other products includes regional artisan specialties such as: breads, artisan cheeses, jams, and fresh local fish. Shopping at a farmers market provides a forum for learning how food is grown, who grew it, and why it tastes so good. Located within the historic Ferry Building are different shops, cafes, and small eateries. After 2 hours spent at the market, we head to the Fisherman’s Wharf/Pier 39 area where you may enjoy the day as you please.
