Artisan cheeses, oysters, Parisian-style cafés, chocolate confections, jams, and freshly baked pastries galore line the colorful farmers' market stands.
Recent travelers rave about the marketplace's broad selection, but note one drawback: hefty price tags. According to one TripAdvisor, the marketplace has, "Great food, and though you pay top price, the quality is superb… as well as stunning views of the Bay, and often wonderful farmer's market finds out side."
You can reach the marketplace via the Embarcadero BART/Muni Station and several public buses lines. Car parking is also available near the marketplace. The marketplace is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m with slightly different hours on the weekends. Restaurants and stores, however, maintain varied hours.
