The Ferry Building is a ferry terminal for people travelling across the San Francisco Bay. The 245 foot high clock tower has been one of the famous landmarks of San Francisco for over 100 years.

The main reason to come here though, is the food: The Fabulous farmers market is here at the ground floor on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday only. Every week, there are about 25,000 people visit the market. The market offers everything from artisan cheeses, wine, sprits to locally produced fresh vegetables, fruits and seafoods.

There are no shortage of great places to eat here. You can find a variety of cuisines such as Vietnamese at the Slanted Door, fine quality burgers and shakes at Gott’s Roadside, Mediterranean at the MarketBar, fresh oysters at the Hog Island Oyster Company and American at the Bouli Bar. These restaurants and cafes mostly source their fresh ingredients from the farmers market. Its landmark is the clock tower on top of the building.
