The Cannery Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Located beside San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, The Cannery is a historic building that (as you might have guessed) was once home to the California Fruit Company (later Del Monte) fruit and vegetable canning plant. In fact, while it was open it was the largest peach canning facility in the world.
It was utilized as such until 1937, and upon renovation in 1960 it reopened as collection of shops and restaurants. The beautiful red brick exterior surrounds a courtyard where trains once ran into the cannery. Its courtyard still has the same century-old olive trees which line the outdoor space for sidewalk cafes and, during the summer, street performers and musicians.
Unique shops located at The Cannery include a build-a-bear toy shop, art and sculpture galleries, and an international musical instrument shop. There is also a small wine tasting room, artisan bakery, and the classic Jack’s Cannery Bar. The shopping center overlooks San Francisco Bay.
The Cannery is located at Del Monte Square on Leavenworth Street, just three blocks from Pier 39 in San Francisco. Shops open daily at 10 am, and on Sundays at 11 am. Restaurants begin serving lunch around 11 am.
Address: 2801 Leavenworth Street, San Francisco, California, USA 94133, USA
Hours: Shops are open Mon-Sat 10am-6pm and Sun 11am-6pm
