As the world goes organic, biodynamic, sustainable, and humane there is only one place that epitomizes these lifestyles the best, and it is San Francisco. I recently visited the Mission District and Noe Valley, and was taken aback at how every facet of this progressive city has contributed to these movements. Follow my steps to some great finds in a city that makes the world not only eat but think about food.
Blue Chair Fruit Company Stand
Meet the home canner, Rachel Saunders, creator of these impressive local and sustainable preserves made differently every week. Strawberry Marsala Jam with Rosemary ... need I say more!
Rainbow Grocer & Co-op
Imagine a wholesale Whole Foods and you have Rainbow Co-op. Bulked oils, nut pastes, spices, and a large selection of locally made artisan yogurts. The cosmetics counter (yes, in a grocery store) carries many unknown organic labels.
