A century ago, the Ferry Building was the second busiest transit terminal in the world, after Charing Cross Station in London. Now it serves as a minor commuter port and the home of more than 40 culinary stands and restaurants that epitomize the farm-to-table movement. Grass-fed, organic, free-range, sustainable, ecological, local, non-GMO, gluten-free - it's all here. And it's delicious. This loop walk through the Ferry Building focuses on culinary delectables and the stories behind them. Bon appetit!
