Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market

We are blessed in the San Francisco Bay Area to have an abundance of farmer’s markets, many of which operate year-round. The thrice-weekly farmer’s market at the San Francisco Ferry Building provides a multiple blessing, with its huge array of fresh, local foods, and the possible added fun of a ferry ride across the bay, the Ferry Building shops, and the energy of city shoppers bustling through a farmer’s market. Here are some snaps from a recent visit:

    Suz, these photos are amazing~I live here and don’t always notice the beauty you’ve captured. Thanks!

  2. Hi Lisa! It’s great to see you. Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comment. I’m sure we can all look around a little more. It’s impossible to notice everything – but it’s fun to try!

  3. We haven’t been to nearly enough farmers’ markets. Thanks for the lovely reminder of how much they have to offer!

    • Hi Debi! Great to see you. You’re most welcome. I don’t get to nearly enough farmer’s markets myself. They’re always fun, a chance to meet new people and try new things, in addition to being surrounded with lovely, fresh produce and flowers.

  4. lovely!

    i’ve heard about this farmers mkt through the NY times. is it as wonderful as the one at union square? last time i was there, that one was a mob scene. it was a point of santity for me while i lived in ny to get a bit of farm/country pure-fresh energy in the urban oppression of city life.

  5. Hi Kath! It’s great to see you. I remember the Union Square Farmer’s Market and don’t remember it being oppressively crowded. (I think you lived in NY longer than I did. It may have changed.) The Ferry Plaza one here has a lot of people, but it’s very pleasant and not overly crowded. The whole Ferry Building is kind of a foodie paradise, so people are both inside and outside at the market. It’s always great to meet the local growers and see what’s in season.
