We enjoyed people-watching and taking our time walking through the tents and sampling various fare. Continue inside of the Ferry Building to try a multitude of gourmet treats, including chocolates, coffees, and teas. Grab a quick lunch at the raw-food sandwich tent at the entrance to the building, or at any one of the many healthful shoppes!

We stumbled upon the Farmers' Market by accident and spent a few hours eating our way through the various stalls.
It's operated by the CUESA (Centre for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture), which supports regional and smaller family farms.
It’s situated at the foot of Market Street on Embarcadero in the Ferry building. I think it was the F-line trolley that stops right outside.
Even if the weather is bad, most of the stalls are inside the Ferry building, so it would still be a pleasant experience. However, we were lucky and had a sunny, warm morning, so, after procuring foods and fruits, we headed out the back doors to the ocean and sat on one of the many benches to enjoy our purchases.
For a full list of all the vendors, check out the markets own website HERE. Don’t expect the usual cheap produce - this market has all the best suppliers, such as Acme Bread Company, Trinidad Fishing, and Noe Valley Bakery.
One unusual place I liked was the Delica rf-1, which was actually a Japanese deli. For just a few dollars, I chose a fried scallop and a crab croquette. Grabbed a chai iced coffee from Pete’s coffee and an organic peach from another stall, there was a quick snack to enjoy on the pier.
The hours vary depending on the time of year, but these were the hours when I went. However, they were advertising a late-night Thursday beginning soon.
