The shops of the Ferry Building and adjoining thrice-weekly Ferry Plaza Farmers Market are revered by locals for their seasonal, sustainable produce and a tempting array of sweet treats. Join your epicurean concierge to discover the quality and cultural diversity of San Francisco's artisanal food community!

You will meet your personal epicurean concierge in front of the Ferry Building Marketplace, which houses some of the most well-known food purveyors in San Francisco. The Ferry Building and Ferry Plaza Farmers Market are staples for the city's most talked-about chefs, and you will be guided through the market place to experience San Francisco as a local!

You'll taste organic cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery, sample sourdough bread from ACME Bread Company, nibble on freshly made mortadella and enjoy the delicious house cured fennel salami produced by celebrity chef Chris Cosentino.

Try fresh-baked fruit and vegetable tartlets from Frog Hollow Farm in nearby Brentwood, enjoy pickled vegetables from Happy Girl Kitchen; try the French macaroons from Miette Patisserie; and compare chocolates from Recchiuti Confections and Scharffen Berger.

Very educational and enjoyed the incredible food. Went back later and bought some chili from Prather Ranch, bread from Acme, olive oils and some delicious jam for our Anniversary dinner at our room.

Quinn was the best guide. His interest and personal appreciation of each vendor made the tour such fun! There were only three of us on the tour so it was very low key and individualized. I would call this a don't miss if you have already seen the major tour stops.

Great tour! Excellent, knowledgeable guide. My only complaint is that there was so much food. Lots of samples, too large. Guide was very accommodating about me being vegetarian.

ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT! Try to do this on a Saturday when all of the vendors are selling local products! By far our favorite tour and day in San Francisco!

we took a tour with Kelly, a chef, of the Ferry Building and the Saturday Farmers market today. only 5 other people were on the tour. Kelly showed us around the building with stops at her favorite shops including chocolate, cheese, meat, fruit and juice. we got free samples at each stop and chats with the proprietors. don't bother to eat breakfast before this tour! she also knows where the secret toilets are so as to avoid crowds. and she is passionate about local and organic and knows her stuff. highly recommended.
