Tuesday Ferry Building Farmers Market

sixteenbiticon | May 12, 2011 05:50 AM

I just wanted some clarification here. I've read that a lot of vendors don't set up shop on Tuesdays so I wanted to know if the farmer's market is destination worthy to tourists? Implying that we won't be looking for groceries, we'd be more interested in prepared foods (4505's burger, Roli Roti's Porchetta sandwich, etc.) We only have 3 and a half days in the city before we travel up to wine country so would it be worth it to spend half a day here (we would probably check out the shops and restaurants inside as well)?

Actually let me edit this post: We could POSSIBLY make it on Saturday. Our flight arrives at 9:51am and we're staying close to the Civic Center BART stop so if we check our bags at the hotel and then take the BART up the Ferry building we could probably make it. My original plan was to get a mid-day brunch at Canteen. Should we really go through all of this trouble to check it out? I normally wouldn't bother as I'm usually not that impressed with outdoor markets, but I was pleasantly surprised by the Marche Jean-Talon in Montreal.

Thanks for clearing this up for us.
