From outdoor dining to new business openings, there's some exciting changes to check out at The Ferry Building.
The Ferry Building’s outdoor seating area, which is now open, was expanded last summer.
The iconic Ferry Building Marketplace is ready for business. Basic health and safety measures have been implemented—mask requirements, one-way lanes, air filtering systems, cleaning procedures and more—so you can feel confident that you’re safely shopping and dining. Outdoor dining is back, and the market offers takeout, home delivery and pickup as well.

There’s also no shortage of openings. “Despite the many challenges posed by the pandemic, the Ferry Building has added quite a few new, locally beloved concepts over the past few months, and we have adapted our approach to support our merchants,” says Jane Connors, general manager of the Ferry Building. Latin American Cholita Linda is set to open its doors as the first location outside the East Bay. Expect fresh offerings with local ingredients including tacos, sandwiches and cocktails. Another new spot to check out is The Epicurean Trader, which opened in December. This artisan-focused shop is the store’s largest location, selling wine, spirits and food from up-and-coming producers.

Aside from the wonderful food stalls, restaurants, florists and shops on-site, there’s also the farmers market, open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10AM to 2PM and on Saturdays from 8AM to 2PM. For those who prefer the convenience and extra safety, there’s also the CUESA farmers market box available for curbside pickup or home delivery on Saturdays from 9AM to 1PM. The box includes fresh produce for two to four people for one week, as well as add-on options such as dairy products and bread. Every box supports multiple family farms and keeps the farmers market, an essential business, open.
The Ferry Building Marketplace’s mission is to operate a community that focuses on promoting local culture and cuisine. “It has always been a gathering place for a broad cross-section of Bay Area residents, and we have made adjustments to make sure our customers can still visit safely,” says Connors. “The grateful feedback customers have shared has really illustrated what a special community exists at the Ferry Building, and we’re so honored to be a part of it.” 1 Ferry Building
