Dating back to 1898, San Francisco’s iconic Ferry Building is not just a transportation hub. It’s a landmark location for the Bay Area’s best food artisans, boasting two weekly farmers’ markets and dozens of nationally acclaimed vendors and restaurants.
Join the original Ferry Building Tour established in 2004 and sample award-winning Mt. Tam cheese from Cowgirl Creamery, paired with sweet and sour loaves from Berkeley’s Acme Bread with a food industry professional as your guide. House cured fennel salumi and freshly made mortadella in Boccalone’s “meat cones” are an instant hit.
We’ll taste handmade chocolate confections from Recchiuti and French macarons from Miette, named one of the top ten pastry shops in the world by Conde Nast Traveller. An offshoot of the high-end Slanted Door, Out the Door’s legendary spring rolls are a crowd favorite. Additional stops may include Frog Hollow Farms, Sow Juice, and American Eatery.
All of Edible Excursions stops are subject to change depending upon availability. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated with advance notice.
“Edible Excursions' two-hour tour provides tastes from 10 or more businesses (sometimes including a farmers' market stall or two) while expert guides share their deep knowledge of the artisans behind the eat. This tour is a great choice for people with mobility issues, since it follows a compact, mostly indoor route. That also makes it perfect for rainy winter days or an escape from summer fog.”
