I love to shop this local market. They always have fresh local produce and quality local meats. They also have a great cheese and wine selection and friendly, helpful staff.

Had to edit down, so here is what is most salient: There are self-serve $8 and $9 a pound breakfast and dinner hot foods in self serve counters. Nice choices which include Indian and Mexican dishes, but most of the Mexican food is tasteless and most all items are too salty . A decent size combo box can be about $30.00. Bad place to shop when you're hungry. --- BAD NEWS TO MANY OUT HERE: I have to go with organic as much as possible for health considerations. Recently, ""new execs"" have gotten rid of a lot of the bulk food bins, already lessening for some time, and worse yet....The end-of-shelf-time discounted meats/fish bin. (Why? To put off as in eschew ""less-desirable"" i.e. less well-off clientele, so I have heard) --- With the already-exorbitant prices of their meats, etc. this was the only way I could afford to get any there and will now have to drive to Whole Foods across town or perhaps Trader Joe's --- HINT HINT -> Perhaps with enough pressure they will reverse that decision. But they seem to want to cater to millionaires exclusively. --- It was bad enough the discounts per the above were by then much less than the traditional half-price (and in a few careless cases I have on cam, discounts exceeded original price) and during a time that the general prices have gone sky-high. I guess my spending hundreds of bucks a month there is not enough to have some consideration that as an artist my income is unpredictable and as a person who does not believe in letting the abandoned go abandoned in the name of self-help first, I use all (and I mean all) profits beyond my basic needs plus high med costs to assist others in serious need and trouble, such as trafficked women, etc. So no doubt will be going there less, as I have to have funds to use for this effort . Recently, I started shopping at my corner market which is surprisingly tolerable (more than most such) though limited and super costly and that place I found to be till under Andronico's prices Good for selections of beverages and some other stuff. While I will be heading to Other Avenues (30 blocks west) for bulk and maybe organics..no doubt will still get to Andronico's due to scheduling issues that have me shop at last minute and it's the nearest decent place around here but.... well let's put it this way... those prices are surely a ""God-thing"" to keep me on a diet, and I am surprised many more don't bust out laughing to read them. Maybe that plan to attract millionaires has worked already?

Everything is so expensive here, and it's completely no contest to Whole Foods in terms of selection. I guess if people live in the area, then it's an ok alternative if you're too lazy to go all the way near downtown. I've had a lot of food from their deli areas too, from sushi to the hot meals, and also the coffees at the other side. All uneventful.

Every time I shop at Andronicos (which is only when I absolutely have to) I can't help but wonder why the costs are so high, or where all that cost mark-up goes as I wait in ridiculously long, understaffed check-out lines. At least at Whole Foods you can get some degree of service for the money you're spending. If you need help finding something, good luck in finding someone to help you. Help cuts in to their profits maybe? Along with being understaffed, they are usually under-stocked as well, so if there is a sale, again good luck in finding any left, just ""try coming back on Thursday"".

This is the sad excuse the Sunset has to offer in place of a Whole Foods. Their products are expensive, and there's a huge lack of selection. Their meat isle is especially lacking as the only grass-fed beef I was able to buy one day is pre-chopped for beef stew. Also, the only organic anything in terms of protein was chicken.

Quite pretentious little supermarket. ?Prices are fairly expensive. ?You run into a lot of soccer moms. ?But hey, if you're looking for good food and don't mind all of the above, then this is a great supermarket. ?They have a lot of everything. ?The food that they offer is pretty great. ?They have fun desserts, plants, some ethnic food. ?It's like a little Whole Foods in the Sunset. ?My favorite thing that they offer is their date bars. ?They're like fig newton bars, but totally unhealthy and yummy. ?Man, they're good!!!

I love this market! I wish there was one in San Diego!! This is like a Dean & Deluca times 10. They have foods from all over the world and the variety of everything from olives to wines is outstanding. Everytime I go to San Francisco I will stop by this market.
