Fruits, Nuts, and Flakes

In a town that’s the punchline of a joke that describes the inhabitants as “fruits, nuts, and flakes”, we are lucky to get good fruits. Here’s a selection of six different organic plums surrounding an organic peach; some of which were my late-night snack.

In the Castro we have Harvest Market (2285 Market @ 16th, +1.415.626.0805) and Buffalo Foods (598 Castro @ 18th, +1.415.626.7038). Not too far away is the Rainbow Grocery Co-op. Near Van Ness Ave. is a Whole Foods (or “Whole Paycheck”). In the Mission there’s Bi-Rite (3639 18th St @ Delores, +1.415.241.9760).

I ought not forget the Farmers’ Markets; the mid-week one for the proletariat, the weekend fancy one for the bourgeoisie.

Completely remiss would be a column without mention made of the unbelievable heirloom tomatoes currently in a very short season at Trader Joe’s. These multi-colored orbs are to supermarket tomatoes what San Francisico is to, say, Ulan Bator on a bad, bad day.

Mangia, mangia! (Then tell me where you get excellent produce in your neighborhood.)

    Hey there! I really love Golden Produce. It’s hiding across the street from the Safeway on Church Street, between Duboce and 14th. Mmmm…fruit.
