Spotted SF / Mission / Bi-Rite Market


In my opinion this is, hands down, the best independently-owned urban grocery in the whole city, especially if you care about  sustainable, farm-direct, organic freshness, and quality artisan items. Even the staff is super-friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the products they carry. I cook frequently from their nifty recipe book. Their ice creamery across the way always has the longest line, so pop in here to quickly grab a pint instead. I’ll soon be signing up for their classes at 18 Reasons. This place will surely make me go bankrupt, but it’s worth it.
