When we need a specialty item such as a jar of pickled Moroccan lemons or a wedge of Truffle Tremor cheese, or gourmet prepared meals, we head to Bi-Rite Market in the Mission. Bi-Rite is a small neighborhood market fully stocked with hard-to-find gourmet specialty items, fresh produce, health food, home supplies, wines, liquors, fresh meat and seafood, prepared/deli food, and household items. There's even an aisle with gourmet pet food.
Across the street from the store, Bi-Rite operates a gourmet, organic ice cream shop called Bi-Rite Creamery. Made with local milk, and with flavors such as salted caramel and Ghirardelli chocolate, it's a nice place to pop in for a treat after doing your grocery shopping.
