San Fran's City Market A Better Choice Than Fisherman's Wharf
Walking into the old ferry building along the pier and taking in the bustling, buzzing city market is turning into one of San Francisco’s true pleasures. Whichever city planner decided the ferry building should be renovated and put to use deserves some kudos.
The place is usually filled with people from all walks of life, shopping for dinner ingredients, flowers or books, or just hanging out. It’s everything tourist trap Fisherman’s Wharf isn’t. Which means you’ll actually find people who live in San Francisco here and you won’t be paying the pumped-up, tourist-placing plan (Fisherman’s Wharf: Where a meal worth $30 will cost you $120!)
You can get all types of fresh fruit at the city market. There’s a great cheese shop where you can get free tastings, just like you’re doing the wine thing in Napa Valley. Avoid the seafood shop though. It’s New England clam chowder makes some chain restaurants’ versions look good. And the fish & chips aren’t much better.
Overall, the city market is a standout though. It’s the kind of place you’ll enjoy whether you’re on a cheap San Francisco golf experience or a blow-the-budget San Francisco golf experience. And yes, you can find good, cheap golf in the city that makes New York look reasonable.
