    The Wine Merchant was an excellent place with a great selection to taste and purchase along with some cheese and meat plates. The bar keep James knew his wines and told us of interesting places to visit. Found some good things there worth the visit...

    Ferry Plaza marketplace is nice and it mostly sells plants, at least on a Sunday. Large number of stalls and good quality products.

    Union Square in itself is a nice place but there are a lot of vagrants in and around the area and it doesn’t feel very safe. Shame!

    The Westfield Centre is a massive shopping plaza in downtown San Fransisco. It has all of the big name brands within. Good place to shop.

    There are some decent Japanese shops here. I particularly like the $1.50 store. Do not expect Tokyo or anything. Some restaurants as well. Parking is reasonable.

    Kind of old fashioned these days, this is a classic department store on Union Square. 8 floors or so of shopping. It was quite the mad house on Black Friday. They have a discount store on the 8th floor that reminds me of a Walgreens, would skip that. SantaLand is on floor seven. Both designer and more affordable clothes and housewares spread throughout. Some nice deals in each of the clearance sections. They have a pretty good, but crowded food court.

    Nordstrom is an excellent chain and a great place to shop. The San Francisco shop is downtown and in a nice old building. Worth a look.

    A quality store with many of your favourite brands. Although they come with a price tag, the products are typically high quality that don't wear out within months. Nor are they over the top fashion that need to be replaced by next season's new fashions.

    While there are some shopping options, I always visit the Embarcadero Center for the food. Wide variety of options has always left me satisfied.

    I enjoyed a nice shopping trip to Nieman Marcus in San Francisco. It is close to Union Squrae. Since its the holiday season, they were starting to put up their holiday decoartions. Staff is nice.

    Because you are off the street and away from traffic, this small shopping center is pleasant. Not sure how successful it is as there are empty store fronts. Some places to eat.

    I was visiting San Francisco again and wanted to bring my husband here to see all the variety of flowers that come through the market. I loved visiting here on my last trip and knew he would be as astonished as I was the first time I saw it, so many things we had not seen before! The area has declined some since I was here last because the homeless population has exploded since the pandemic, but it is still 100% worth a visit, and if you like you can get yourself some beautiful flowers to bring home or back to your hotel room to brighten it up, they also have a lot of potted plants and party items.

    I saw the photographs of the rock stars from the 60's, including an upstairs pass to the orginal Abby Road photographs and more recent "pop" and political icons. The gallery staff were pleasant and low key with no pressure to buy. We were allowed to simply enjoy the display. They said they frequently handle this type of material.

    I actually like to come visit this store whenever i'm in town looking for deep discounts on sportswear. It does carry quite a bit of the local teams stuff, but there is a large selection of other college/sports teams around the country(guess its for the wannabe ny fan).
