Seating: Yes, behind the stalls in the covered arcade.

Other notes: Also a great place to pick up some local produce while you wait for your lunch. Also a great place to hit early for a no-wait, hangover-soothing porchetta sandwich.

Some street food gatherings become so woven into the fabric of a location, that it's easy to forget what it was like before they were there. The Thursday Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market, which started its current incarnation in early July of 2009, is one of them.
