Larkspur Ferry and Marin Country Mart join forces for month-long promotion

Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry and Marin Country Mart are partnering to offer free ferry rides to San Francisco residents and visitors during the month of August! Here’s how it works…

Customers download a free ferry ticket from the Golden Gate website, board a qualified off-peak weekday or weekend trip at the Golden Gate San Francisco Ferry Terminal and, upon arriving in Larkspur, take a brief stroll across the pedestrian bridge to the upscale shopping and dining destinations at the Marin Country Mart. After experiencing its many inviting shops, artisanal restaurants and featured entertainment, guests are treated to a complimentary ferry ride back to San Francisco (note: guests must visit a Marin Country Mart retailer to get the return ferry ticket).

Qualifying SF-to-Larkspur trips include any weekday departure between 8:30am and 3pm and the weekend departure at 12:40pm; qualifying Larkspur-to-SF trips include any weekday departure between 10:10am and 8:50pm and the weekend trip at 4:45pm.

Ongoing events at the Marin Country Mart include the Folkish Festival (Sundays from 12:30 to 2:30pm), Friday Night Jazz (Fridays from 6 to 9pm), a Farmers’ Market (Saturdays from 9am to 2pm), and Off the Grid food trucks (Sundays from 11am to 3pm).
