Hit the Ferry Building early on Tuesday or Saturday and you'll find a one-stop shop for your organic meat, artisanal cheese, fresh-baked bread, locally produced veggie fixings, sustainable snacks and more eco-conscious goodies than you could possibly dream up.
The next best thing to having a lettuce-and-tomato garden in your own backyard is living near this sweet little produce market in the Castro, where produce (and flowers--a nice decorative touch or host gift) are not only impeccably fresh but also reasonably priced.
One of the city's most loved local businesses, this Cole Valley hardware store has exceptionally knowledgeable staff that'll give as much attention to your $20 mini kettle grill purchase as they will to a $1000 Weber Summit Gold gas-grilling wonder.
This Brisbane shop is one of the few places in Northern California where you can get the international holy grail of outdoor grills: The Fuego 01, a streamlined, stainless steel beauty that received the Gold IDEA award for industrial-design excellence from "Business Week" in 2007.
