This is a nice little place with shops but they are expensive. Especially during the hot days a place to hang out before your ferry comes!

Th Ferry Building Marketplace has numerous booths & stores to buy all kinds of food and household needs. Restaurants cater to almost every taste. And you can sit out and watch the ferries travel across the Bay. A wonderful place to visit.

I had to take the ferry for a day trip to Napa Valley. Very easy to take the Bart from Ocean Beach to ferry building. The stop was at Embarcadero which is last stop. There is a Starbucks next door to the terminal too. The building is very clean and there are some eateries, however, most were closed at 6... More

Ferry Building Marketplace is a local delight. Browse the aisles of natural food products from NorCal farms inside and out; produce, vegetables, jams, fruits, baked goods, etc. It's little pricey, but you can find almost anything for an upscale sit down meal or a quick pick me up after exercise. The outdoor market focuses on produce and artisan specialties. The... More

Plus the Book Passage is fine, small independent bookstore with great selection. And of course you can catch a number of Bay Area ferries here. The view of the Bay Bridge lights... More
