The Ferry Building Marketplace

The Ferry Building Marketplace is a people's marketplace serving residents and travelers alike. Located within the historic Ferry Building at the foot of Market Street, shops large and small celebrate food in all its forms, offering everything from artisan cheeses to the freshest of local fish. Restaurants and cafés serve cuisine representing the quality and cultural diversity of San Francisco's best chefs. The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is a California certified farmers market operated by the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA). The market is open on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Our Mission

We are very committed to the artisan food community and to fostering the values of that community here at the Ferry Building. We envision the Ferry Building Marketplace as a vibrant gathering of local farmers, artisan producers, and independently owned and operated food businesses and the customers they serve.

The Ferry Building Marketplace is located along the Embarcadero at the foot of Market Street. It is the center of a transit hub that connects all of San Francisco's neighborhoods and the surrounding bay communities. The marketplace is accessible by MUNI, BART and Ferry Boat. The historic trolley cars (Line F Market) stop directly in front of the Ferry Building.

Introduction to the Sir Francis Drake Kimpton, a Hotel

Originally built in 1928, the transformations in the San Francisco Union Square hotel's 416 guest rooms and lobby reveal a more stylish and sophisticated look and feel, which perfectly complement the traditional elements and original Gothic Revival and Regency architecture of the property. As guests make their way up the grand staircase into the lobby, their eyes will be immediately drawn to the striking crimson statue of Sir Francis himself, presiding over Bar Drake, keeping a watchful eye over his guests. Vibrant and chic décor and pops of color are interspersed with touches of the traditional, making Bar Drake the perfect spot to gather over handcrafted cocktails and noshes either at the bar or in the comfortable lounge style seating placed throughout.

The hotel has just completed a full renovation of rooms and lobby on September 2011.

The design of the new Sir Francis Drake, a Kimpton Hotel is a take on a classic-contemporary interpretation of the attitude and elegance of Sir Francis Drake's time period, woven into a modern fantasy that honors our Kimpton Grand Boutique roots. The design seeks to balance the look of our Union Square accommodations with the glamorous, regal architecture of the lobby and our public spaces. The rooms are a modern rendition of historically inspired pieces woven together into a collective tapestry the elaborate headboards, the art work, the carpet patterns, the jewel-toned color of the fabrics and even the slim dresser and oversized leaning mirror, all designed to create comfort. Combined with Kimpton-style service and amenities, our assortment of style offers a variety of choices in accommodations to enhance the experience of your stay with us.
