Check out this little gem I discovered around the corner from our apartment the other day… I know, I know!!!
As someone who ad libs a lot of her recipes and is always looking for creative ways to combine veggies with comfort food, my heart fluttered when I spotted a little produce store just a few blocks from our new digs. I made my first trip there the other day to grab a cucumber – a necessary ingredient for a last minute falafel dinner topped with homemade Tzatziki. After a good fifteen minutes of perusing the fruits, veggies, cheeses and chocolate bars, I managed to escape with just a cucumber + one jar of organic, chocolate hazelnut spread… Yes, RDs get early-morning chocolate cravings occasionally too.
Our little produce store seemed to have just about every fruit or vegetable one could ever want – a fair bit of it organic. They even had a mound of butternut squash (!!!) – something I haven’t been able to find fresh in any grocery store for over six weeks now. I can definitely see myself becoming a regular here – can’t wait to check out the Saturday farmer’s market just down the street, next!
Fruit & veggie shopping – grocery store, produce store, farmer’s market?
Early morning chocolate cravings – Nutella crepe, chocolate chip pancakes or a mocha latte?

Looks like a Meximart :) Take advantage of the crazy Farmer Markets we have! Alemany Farmers Market and the Ferry Plaza FM are my absolute favorites, they’re just an experience and so San Francisco. Cheers!
Love it! What neighborhood is your new place in? I live in Nob Hill :) Let me know if you need any city recommendations, I’ve been here 6 years.
What an amazing and lucky find! We used to have a produce stand a few miles down the road, but it closed and became a CrossFit box. Sad day for me since I don’t do CrossFit…
Awesome find! I love farmer’s markets, but have only found one so far in Australia. For a chocolate breakfast…chocolate chip pancakes for me!
Looks like a great find! And heck yes I’ve been having morning chocolate cravings. The other day a choc Vitamuffin had to hold me over. (Everyone needs a stash of emergency chocolate. ;) )
I love my neighborhood produce store that also has organic goods but nothing beats the Union Sqare Green Market. I can’t have crepes or pancakes, but the mocha latte sounds good right about now.
As much as I love buying my fruits and veggies at farmers markets and little places like that, I end up mostly buying them at the grocery store out of sheer convenience. When I split up my list and buy at different locations, I end up spending way more:(
What a find! I wish I had one of these in my neighborhood. We do have a Whole Foods, so I can find some good produce there. Otherwise, in the warmer months, I enjoy going to the farmer’s market for fresh fruits and veggies.
Coffee and chocolate are the best combination known to man.
How amazing that you have that produce store within walking distance! Very jealous of that one. And I occasionally get a chocolate craving in the am…if its a weekend, I usually I throw some chocolate chips into a protein pancake. Or grab a protein bar with chocolate!
Awesome find! As for the early morning chocolate cravings – yes to all three ;)
I love San Fran. I go there once a month, at least since I have family there. And, that’s great you found a healthy nutella spread. So lucky! What’s the name of the brand?
I love little corner places like that :) We don’t nearly have enough of them in the area I live. Boo. the Milk Pail market was one of my favorite stops when the husband lived in Mountain View and I always hit up the local farmers market on weekends to get my fresh produce.
I have been on a huge Nutella kick lately. I need to hide it or it will overtake me.
How wonderful! If I had a place like this within walking distance of my home, I’d be there constantly.
That is soo awesome to have around the corner! I wish there was something like that by me!
Love farmer’s markets and definitely chocolate chip pancakes :)
What a great little spot – so convenient!
Nutella on pancakes please :)
Yay for the great find! That’s awesome it’s so close.
Now I want a nutella crepe. Must eat.
