Other fun things to do include sampling goodies at the Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building and catching a show at one of SF's theaters.
Tuesday nights are also fun in San Francisco. You can head to the theater, see a concert, or laugh all night long at one of our highly-rated comedy clubs. I've also included recommendations for some of my favorite bars and happy hour spots.
Every Tuesday, you will find an amazing Farmer's Markets at the Ferry Building along the Embarcadero. It features dozens of local producers offering up their goodies from fresh fruits and veggies to homemade sauces and jams. If you love to try new foods, then you will definitely want to check this out.
It's from 10am to 2pm outside the Ferry Building at the end of Market Street.
