The Ferry Building Market is a required weekend pilgrimage for both tourists and locals. The building itself is a gorgeous feat of architecture, with a second-story walkway commanding views of the action below. Though the Ferry Building is best known for the world-famous Cuesa farmers market, it's also packed with a range of browseables beyond food. Within the main hall, admire beautiful glazed ceramics and home decor at Heath Ceramics, Gastboards cutting boards and gardening tools at the Gardener, and dozens of varieties of honey alongside beeswax candles at Beekind. Out front, an open-air artisan market pops up every Saturday, where dozens of vendors peddle their art, jewelry, clothing, leather goods and other handcrafts. Though the shops close at 6pm, the building itself (and some of the restaurants therein) are open until 10pm. At dusk, admire the Ferry Building's iconic clock tower backed by the glittering Bay Lights.

It might just look like an old ferry building from the outside, but inside it's a bustling market. Ice cream, cookware, baked good, oysters. It's a foodie's paradise! Once you've gotten your goods, take a walk outside an enjoy the beautiful view!
Definitely a must visit spot especially if you can come on Farmers Market days to the Ferry Plaza. There are so many wonderful food eateries and specialty food venues, come hungry.
