This historic building that sits on the bay was long the hub of San Francisco's ferries, bringing commuters to the city from the East Bay and Marin County. As ferry service declined, so did the building, although its tower, modeled on the Giralda in Seville, remained one of the city's iconic landmarks. In 2002 the Ferry Building was renovated and became the home of a farmers market selling local fruits, vegetables, oils and nuts. While the market is open only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, you can sample some of San Francisco's best cuisine here every day of the week. Leading restaurants like Gott's Roadside, Hog Island Oyster Company and others are represented by Ferry Building locations.
