Two Larkspur Landmarks Partner on Special Promotion Featuring Complimentary Transportation Between San Francisco and Larkspur

Marin Country Mart and Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry are joining forces to launch a special limited-time promotion that encourages San Francisco residents and visitors to come and enjoy the upscale shopping and dining destination located near the Larkspur Ferry Terminal. The special program offers complimentary transportation from August 1 - 31, 2013, on selected trips.

The promotion invites San Francisco residents and visitors alike to enjoy complimentary travel aboard the Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry when visiting Marin Country Mart. Upon arrival at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal, riders can take a brief stroll over a 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 will be treated to a complimentary Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry ride back to San Francisco. Bicycles are welcome on the ferry (limit varies by vessel), so bikers can continue on to visit the area's nearby trails and parklands.

This special offer is only available to Larkspur Ferry riders on certain weekend trips and on off-peak, non-commute weekday trips. Qualified trips of the San Francisco to Larkspur Ferry are weekday departures between 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and the weekend departure at 12:40 p.m. Qualified trips from Larkspur to San Francisco include weekday departures between 10:10 a.m. - 8:50 p.m. and the weekend departure at 4:45 p.m. The complete Larkspur schedule is available by calling 511 or online at http://goldengateferry.org/schedules/Larkspur.php. This offer is not valid for organized tour groups.

Here is how San Francisco riders can take advantage of this special offer, from August 1 - 31:

  • Riders departing San Francisco may go online and download a promotion ferry ticket from San Francisco to Larkspur at http://www.goldengate.org/MCMPromo and present the ticket upon boarding a qualified ferry departure. (See above for participating ferry departures where coupons are valid.)
  • The Golden Gate San Francisco Ferry Terminal (SFFT) is located on The Embarcadero at the foot of Market Street behind the historic San Francisco Ferry Building.
  • During riders' visit to Marin Country Mart, they may see any retailer to get a promotion ticket for the complimentary ferry ride back to San Francisco. They should present the ticket upon boarding a qualified ferry departure. (See above for participating ferry departures.)

James Rosenfield, Marin Country Mart's owner, is excited to welcome visitors from San Francisco and beyond, and partner with Golden Gate Ferry to offer free ferry passage for this limited-time promotion. "The ferry offers a refreshing, enjoyable way to come to Marin Country Mart, where visitors will be surprised and tempted by the unique offerings of upscale shops, artisanal eateries and convenient services. In addition, our congenial village environment is a delightful change of pace from the city's hustle and bustle." Formerly known as Larkspur Landing, Marin Country Mart's new incarnation began in 2009. Since then, the shopping venue has become known for its inviting ambience, approximately 20 specialty shops - many found nowhere else in the Bay Area, 13 diverse dining options, and a multitude of special events designed to attract both families and adults.
