If food and local produce entice you, then a trip to the base of Market Street should be incorporated into your itinerary.

Drop by the Ferry Building Marketplace for a Food Trip You Won't Forget

Situated along the Embarcadero is the Ferry Building Marketplace, the heart of a transit center that links the neighborhoods and nearby bay towns in and around San Francisco.

You can go here by riding the Line F Market trolley cars and have free walking tours of the building every Tuesdays and Saturdays at 12 NN. Make sure that you drop by during these days as they happen together with the Ferry Plaza  Farmers Market.

If you can’t make it to the walking tour, then you can easily stroll around the building yourself and take in the various food stores in the area. Try the freshest catch of local fish and sample artisan cheeses – do this and celebrate food and travel in just one spot.

So get more info on the Ferry Building Marketplace in this excerpt of a review published on travel-oriented website, called Frommer’s:

There's no better way to enjoy a San Francisco morning than strolling this gourmet marketplace in the Ferry Building and snacking your way through breakfast or lunch… The Marketplace is open daily and includes much of Northern California's best gourmet bounty: Cowgirl Creamery's Artisan Cheese Shop, Recchiuti Confections (amazing chocolate), Acme Breads, Hog Island Oysters, gourmet fast food from Napa's Taylor's Refresher, famed Vietnamese restaurant the Slanted Door, and myriad other restaurants, delis, gourmet coffee shops, specialty foods, and wine bars. Check out the Imperial Tea Court where you'll be taught the traditional Chinese way to steep and sip your tea; nosh on premium sturgeon roe at Tsar Nicoulai Caviar, a small Parisian-style "caviar cafe"; buy fancy cooking items at the Sur La Table shop; grab a bite and savor the bay front views from in- and outdoor tables; or browse the Farmers' Market when it's up and running .
