Hello guests of the Hotel Griffon! You guessed it, I’m at the Ferry Building Marketplace! Whenever I’m in the mood for some Blue Bottle Coffee, specialty cheese from Cowgirl Creamery or unique gifts, I walk on over to the Ferry Building Marketplace! San Francisco’s Ferry Building is located just a short walk along the San Francisco Embarcadero from the Hotel Griffon and offers a number of local shops and restaurants to explore.
You can find specialty shops like Sur La Table and the Gardener as well as first-class dining including the Slanted Door and Market Bar. You can even taste some wine at the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant! On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the Ferry Building offers an incredible farmer’s market where regional farmers and ranchers setup stands featuring fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, meats and eggs. On Thursdays you can also find artisan street food stands, which make for the perfect lunch along the San Francisco Bay.
And of course, the Ferry Building is a hub for travelers heading in and out of San Francisco and offers daily ferry rides to Sausalito, Oakland, Tiburon, Vallejo and more!
Located just minutes from the Hotel Griffon, the Ferry Building Marketplace is a great spot to enjoy a delicious meal, take a ferry across the bay, or shop for fun treats. Be sure to add the Ferry Building Marketplace to your itinerary for your next trip to San Francisco!
