    What to Expect
    Meet your expert culinary guide in front of the Ferry Building Marketplace for a 2-hour walking tour. This landmark, built in the late 19th century, features a 245-foot (75-meter) clock tower and was renovated in 2003. If you're looking for a taste of San Francisco, this concourse featuring artisans and farmers peddling their wares is the best place to get it.

    As you stroll, you may see some of the city's most-revered chefs buying fresh produce to serve at their restaurants that evening. Taste artisan chocolates from Recchiuti and Scharffen Berger, pickled vegetables from Happy Girl Kitchen, macarons from Miette, award-winning cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery and Boccalone's house-cured fennel salami. Bite into veggie and fruit tartlets from Brentwood's Frog Hollow Farm and munch on fresh-baked bread from ACME Bread Company.

    After this 2-hour tour, you are free to explore on your own and purchase any products you have sampled and loved.

    Our tour guide for the food tour was Joshua, and he was awesome! He gave us not only the history of the Ferry Building but also of all the background on the many vendors we visited. This was the best tour we went on while visiting the San Francisco area.

    Started early in the morning - would have preferred a later time, but it was holiday time. Food was plentiful and good. Learned a lot and would do a longer tour next time!
