Something so Rite
I’m in love with the Bi-Rite Market.
Two blocks from my apartment, it’s not a chain and it has all the silly, specific things I love, including:
Taylor’s of Harrogate Earl Grey tea
double Gloucester cheese
balsamic mustard (actually, I’d never heard of this before, but balsamic vinegar=good, mustard=good. What’s not to like?)
cornichons (very tiny dill pickles)
Breyer’s ice cream (a second to Mitchell’s, obviously, but walkable)
peanut butter Puffins
a full-service deli counter
a million fruits and veggies
wines o’ plenty
It’s like they read my mind. Now I can kick it all Euro-style, go a couple times a week, pick up fresh goods, bring ’em back to the pad and pretend to cook.
