We think that tasting is the best way to learn about food, which is why we taste (and know the story behind) products before we decide to put them on our shelves. It’s also the reason we’re constantly putting samples in our customer’s mouths: everything from olive oil to chocolate to bread baked that morning. Our guests trust that we’ve not only tasted every product we sell, but stand behind the way it was made. We’re inspired and influenced by the recommendations made by our guests, and as a result, see our grocery selection as a reflection of what our neighborhood asks for.

Raph, Alli and Kate, our discriminating grocery buyers, ensure that our specialty products reflect a mix of old favorites as well as emerging “favorites-to-be.” Many of our specialty products are organic and/or from small producers from the Bay Area and beyond. We pride ourselves on being a shop for cooks, a one-stop-shop with all of the ingredients you need; when we don’t, we try to find you a workable substitute. Not only do we sell great tasting foods and ingredients, but we also sell environmentally-oriented cleaning supplies and paper products.

Some of the products we’re excited about:

Our own PUBLIC Label Line: we’re redefining what a store line can be by sharing WHERE your food is from, WHO produced it and HOW it was made

Pastured eggs from family farms across Northern California

Raw milk and cream

Artisanal soy products

The best breads the Bay Area has to offer, baked and delivered fresh daily

San Francisco’s best coffee selection under one roof, many delivered to us by bicycle!

Traditional loose Chinese and Taiwanese teas

Jams made by Sam and Raph’s mom, from fruit she grows in her Placerville orchards

Our own proprietary blend of Tuscan style olive oil

A chocolate assortment to die for–we do our best to keep up with the amazing local confections!

Honey from our own hives on the roof of the Market and our Sonoma farm, seasonably available
