Prepared Foods


Our kitchen is the heart and soul of our market. Our chefs have worked in some of San Francisco’s finest restaurants, and bring a respect and reverence for ingredients, seasonality and care in their preparation.  We cook all of our prepared salads, sandwiches, soups and dinner meals in-house, in a kitchen that is right in the middle of the store so you can hear and smell the action as it happens. We smoke our own salmon, make risottos from scratch and roast chickens daily to ensure that they are made with the best ingredients, taste great, and are always fresh. If we can make it, we will! We love to cook, but more importantly, love to feed our guests.

We use the same ingredients in our prepared foods that we sell in our store: sustainably and humanely raised meats, responsibly harvested fish, and vegetables from our own and other nearby farms to name a few. The menu that our kitchen makes for our deli case and grab-and-go shelves changes seasonally, with many daily specials–come in often to see what’s fresh!
