When we were in San Francisco we visited The Ferry Building. It is situated at the foot of Market St and in 2003 it was renovated and turned into a people's market place. Large and small shops celebrate food in all its forms and restaurants and cafes serve a diverse cuisine.
Originally, it was designed byPage Brown and built in 1898 as a ferry terminal and train station before the bridges were built. The building is 660ft long and has a sandstone facade with a 245ft tall clock tower.
There is a two story, sky lit concorse running length wise through the middle of the building.
Our tour group were taken on a delightful food tasting trip through the market place. First stop was the chocolate shop.
There were many shops and foods that we tried, condiments, meats, Vietnamese, cookies,.......
breads and cheese. You can eat yourself silly in here.
And if that isn't enough outside they have a Farmer's Market every Saturday.
Hundreds of food stalls surrounding the Ferry Building. The fruit and vegetables in California are just the best!
