My top 6 favorite S.F. Bay Area grocery stores

We are so lucky to live in the San Francisco Bay Area which has incredible choices for foodies, whether it’s the amazing restaurants at all price points, locally grown, organic produce or the diverse selection of grocery stores.

 Below are a few favorites.  




Locations in San Mateo & Palo Alto.


What I appreciate:


Nice wine selection

Good gluten free choices including delicious Glutenetto cookies & dairy free ice cream.

Nice meat market

Large cheese selection




Locations in San Mateo, Menlo Park, Danville & Los Altos.


Great wine selection!

Three types of delicious smoked salmon at the fish market

Dang rice crackers!  Addictive & gluten free, I especially love the sriracha crackers.

Nice meat market

Huge selection of gourmet vinegars & oils!

Underground parking is a good alternative to the tight, small above ground parking lot

They offer grocery delivery

They email receipts & coupons

Really nice housewares store upstairs!





Two S.F. locations.  If you visit the 18th Street location you can treat yourself to the unbelievably amazing pastries & baked goods at Tartine Bakery as well as Bi-Rite Creamery.


Amazing selection of high quality organic produce, cheeses & pre-made items.  So many choices efficiently packed into a small space.


Be prepared, they are always crazy busy.

Another favorite store that I discovered last year via a listing I sold in the Mission.


Really good sushi!

Sandwiches look delish; pretty packed at lunch (Mission location) due to an assortment of businesses in the area.

Good prices on organic produce

Friendly staff


A shout out to Trader Joe’s which carries my new favorite water called Spindrift, lightly carbonated with a squeeze of natural fruit & unsweetened.


Please share any of your favorite grocery stores.
