I get a nerdy sense of satisfaction at a freshly cleaned and filled fridge.
Friday I tossed sad remnants, wiped down shelves and cleaned out produce drawers, work that I don’t fully love until it is complete.
Sunday, a leisurely walk through Alamo square to the new Bi-Rite.
It’s challenging to put into words exactly how much I love this market. Yes it is packed, and yes it is pricey in some regards. However, I have yet to come across a market with such lush healthful variety and quality.
This market is part of the foundation of my life here. Good meat and produce is a beautiful thing, that sinks deeper into my way of living the longer I’m in SF.
Right now strawberries and asparagus are especially lush.
And when I’ve got the budget for it the meat from Fatted Calf is a thing of beauty.
