THE FERRY BUILDING MARKETPLACE IS ONE OF MANY POPULAR SAN FRANCISCO ATTRACTIONS LOCATED NEAR HOTEL DIVA.
Ferry Building Marketplace is a farmers market located in the historic San Francisco Ferry Building.
The locals seem to regard this place with some reverence. While cities everywhere seem bent on eradicating their own heritage (San Francisco is just completing the demolition of Candlestick Park), the Ferry Building Marketplace, which opened in 1898, was the second busiest ferry terminal in the world for decades. It survived both the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes, and it is now a designated landmark on the National Register of Historic Places.
Some describe how walking into the terminal feels like going back in time due to the atmosphere of the place, and it is a favorite destination for both locals and guests at Hotel Diva.
