The newly renovated San Francisco Ferry Building Marketplace has finally opened. Ferry commuters can sample olive oil at the Stonehouse and McEvoy Olive Oil stalls inside the 1898 structure. Renovation architects have taken inspiration from the street markets of Paris, Harrods in London, and the Pike Place Market in Seattle.
The historic landmark will showcase the best in Northern California artisan foods. Marketplace foods include specialty breads, organic fruits, artisan cheeses, local oysters and custom roasted coffees. A Saturday farmer's market is held outside and features additional olive oil producers: Aeolia, Bariani, and Sciabica.
