One Ferry Building San Francisco California 94111 United States


Located in a late 19th Century ferry terminal, this high-end gourmet food hall at the foot of Market Street and the San Francisco Bay Bridge is a culinary pilgrimage for take-out dining and weekend browsing.&nbsp; The best way to begin is near <span style="font-weight: bold;">Slanted Door Restaurant</span>, the former-James Beard darling with its tough reservation policy but delightful to-go café <span style="font-weight: bold;">Out The Door</span>. Continue walking down the hall to <span style="font-weight: bold;">Hog Island Oysters</span> with its seven varieties of slurpy-shelled delight and onto <span style="font-weight: bold;">Acme Bread Company</span> and <span style="font-weight: bold;">Miette Patisserie</span> for an unrivaled selection of French macarons. Local chefs make regular pilgrimages to <span style="font-weight: bold;">Cowgirl Creamery</span> for its local cheeses and then onto <span style="font-weight: bold;">Far-West Fungi </span>for brown bag-fulls of exotic mushrooms. But perhaps our favorite stop is <span style="font-weight: bold;">Boulette’s Larder</span>, owned and operated by a local couple, who create an apothecary-style counter restaurant with foodie delights for casual lunches and take-home dinners.


If you can, make your way by foot as it’s a struggle to find parking and you may need the exercise afterwards. Try to make it for the local farmer’s market Tuesdays 10am-2pm, Thursdays 4pm-8pm (spring-fall), Saturdays 8am-2pm and Sundays 10am-2am (spring-fall).

Last Word

Locals and thoroughly impressed tourists walk the block-long hall with warehouse style storefronts eateries and open-air passage ways leading to a large terrace overlooking the San Francisco Bay.
