THE FERRY BUILDING
Built in 1898 by a city gone giddy over gold and silver, the Ferry Building now houses gourmet riches in its grand arcades. Peruse a bustling hub of more than 40 artisan purveyors and organic producers selling chocolates, farmstead cheeses, blood orange–infused olive oils, you name it. Three days a week, the city’s largest farmers’ market wraps around the building, selling whatever is in season, plus prepared delicacies such as duck tacos or fresh-shucked oysters.
