Full description
Dating back to 1898, San Francisco’s iconic Ferry Building is a transportation hub and a landmark location for the Bay Area’s best food artisans. It boasts three weekly farmers’ markets and dozens of nationally-acclaimed vendors, restaurants, and chefs. Join the original Ferry Building Tour established in 2004 with a food industry professional as your knowledgable and engaged guide. Guests will sample handmade chocolate confections from Recchiuti and French macarons from Miette, named one of the top ten pastry shops in the world by Conde Nast Traveller. Out the Door’s legendary Vietnamese spring rolls are a crowd favorite. Award-winning Mt. Tam cheese from Cowgirl Creamery, paired with sweet and sour loaves from Berkeley’s Acme Bread are always a hit. Additional stops may include Humphry Slocombe, Epicurean Traders, local producer, Red Bay Coffee, as well as visits and conversations with several local farmers and producers at a farmer's market. This tour also includes the history of the stunning waterfront building, and it's a great choice for guests with limited mobility or those who don't want to do a lot of walking. With pre-arrangement, accommodations can be made for special dietary needs.
