The Slanted Door

The Slanted Door is reopening in 2022! 

The Slanted Door is Charles Phan’s nationally-acclaimed Vietnamese restaurant that anchors the north-east corner of the Marketplace. A wall of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooks the Bay in the contemporary, open-space design. Charles, owner and Executive Chef, first opened The Slanted Door in the Mission District of San Francisco in 1995. He has long been known for using top-quality, local ingredients — organic whenever possible — including sustainable fish, poultry, and meat. His food has been lauded as the pinnacle of Asian cuisine.

The 175-seat restaurant serves lunch and dinner seven days a week and has a full bar with signature cocktails. The menu ranges from Vietnamese street food to complex meat and seafood entrees.

Mariposa Baking Company

Mariposa Baking Company creates gluten-free baked goods that are indiscernible from the finest, high-caliber gluten-based products available. Mariposa uses  the finest ingredients, and organic whenever they can, such as fragrant orange oil, elegant chocolate, locally grown walnuts, fine Italian roasted espresso, sparkling crystals of organic unrefined cane sugar, tender organic brown rice flour, fresh eggs, and grade AA creamery butter.

Mariposa’s Ferry Building Marketplace shop has an array of freshly baked breads, cookies, muffins and more, every day of the week! Mariposa offers a breakfast and lunch menu with delicious hot food items. Also find their tasty savory items, such as pizza and ravioli, in their freezer.

Imperial Tea Court

Imperial Tea Court at the Ferry Building Marketplace is an elegant, traditional Chinese tea shop and salon. Renowned as an exclusive source for many of the most sought-after teas produced today, Imperial Tea Court carries over 100 teas, including organic teas, and a beautiful selection of tea pots, many of which are handmade by masters in China.

The shop entrance features a signature moon gate and dragon sofa made from aged reclaimed wood from China. Visitors can purchase bulk tea at the stunning black granite (imported from China) counter — or pause for tea and snacks, comfortably seated at one of six rosewood tables.

Hog Island Oyster Company

Hog Island Oyster Company is the San Francisco oyster bar, full-service bar, restaurant, and retail outlet for the Tomales Bay oyster farm of the same name. A seat at the stunning oyster bar on the north end of the Ferry Building Marketplace provides a great water view – through floor to ceiling windows looking out on the San Francisco Bay – and impeccably fresh oysters. The menu offers an assortment of raw oysters on the half-shell, a traditional oyster stew, steamed clams, and clam chowder – along with beer, wine, and cocktails.

In 1983, Hog Island began farming oysters in the tiny hamlet of Marshall on scenic coast Highway One just about a two hours north of San Francisco. Today, the company grows and sells over 3 million oysters a year. Hog Island shellfish are grown using a refined technique from France. All shellfish is sorted by hand and put into a state-of-the-art seawater tank system using an ultraviolet sterilizer to purify the seawater. Close monitoring provides extra assurances of safety and quality.

Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant

In the style of European wine merchants, Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant is a classic, hands-on, service-oriented shop for buying, tasting, and learning about wine. The nearly 3,000 square foot shop carries smaller production wines from around the world, as well as everyday, high-quality labels. There is a strong but selective emphasis on California and other American wines; wines from great French, Italian and Spanish producers; offerings from new regions, such as in New Zealand and Australia; and less widely recognized favorites from Germany and Austria. Icons help shoppers easily identify dry and sweet wines, organically grown wines, etc. Seated at the dark wood wine bar, visitors can taste from selections that change weekly.

Foodwise Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

Ferry Plaza Farmers Market hours, 10 AM – 2 PM Tue/Thu – 8 AM – 2 PM Sat.

Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is a California certified farmers market operated by Foodwise. It is open three days a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, year round, rain or shine. The large Saturday market is held in the back plaza overlooking the Bay, along the south side of the building, and in front of the building along the Embarcadero. The Tuesday and Thursday markets take place in front of the building. All three weekly markets offer produce and flowers from top Bay Area farms, many of which are organic. A wealth of other product includes regional meat, seafood, and artisanal specialties — such as breads, cheeses, and jams — as well as street food offerings for brunch and lunch.

On Saturdays, 30,000 shoppers, locals and travelers alike, attend the market. More than 300 Bay Area restaurants shop at the market on a weekly basis. The Foodwise mission is to cultivate a sustainable food system, giving preference to local farmers that use sustainable methods, and prepared food vendors who source ingredients from those farmers. Foodwise hosts about 70 farmers and 50 artisan and prepared food vendors, some of which are seasonal. On Saturdays, Foodwise offers free cooking demos and public education programs at the Foodwise Classroom tent in front of the building.

DELICA is a Japanese delicatessen with a world cuisine menu. The store’s sleek, stainless steel and wood design, like the food served, is contemporary and beautiful. DELICA utilizes local, organic ingredients in its healthy and delicious selection of “sozai.” Sozai refers to Japanese meals made up of many small dishes — reflecting a way of eating that is balanced and healthy. Shoppers can pick up a bento lunch or dinner with an assortment of the day, or choose a la carte items. There are substantive salads — including Hijiki seaweed salad, side dishes such as salmon spring rolls, main course offerings such as tofu and chicken cutlets, and freshly fried foods — Kobe-style croquettes filled with potatoes, shrimp, or meat.

Blue Bottle Coffee

Blue Bottle Coffee has two locations in the Ferry Building Marketplace. The older location is a modern espresso bar in the north nave, and the newer location, their Tasting Room, is out front in the North Arcade. Coffee drinks include a menu of espresso drinks, individually prepared drip coffee, and New Orleans iced coffee. Blue Bottle also offers daily desserts using mostly organic ingredients and other coffee-compatible edibles such as granola and Belgian waffles.

At Blue Bottle Coffee, artisan micro roasting simply means that Blue Bottle takes a hands-on approach to every step possible to discover and preserve the true nature of excellent coffee. Blue Bottle Coffee takes freshness and small-batch roasting to an extreme not considered practical anywhere else in the coffee business. Blue Bottle uses the best certified organic coffees, occasionally using beautiful coffees that are farmed traditionally without pesticides. Blue Bottle never pre-blends coffees thus assuring the ideal roast profile for each bean used in a blend. All varietals are roasted individually, and then mixed into Blue Bottle Coffee blends.
