In most blocks it is residential, but in the Upper and Lower Haight it is also a neighborhood shopping street, with residences above the ground floor shops.

  • I wouldnt be willing to venture out on Haight Street at night, it isnt exactly the nicest part of San Francisco. There are lots of head shops, police, and I even saw a drug deal on Thanksgiving. I thi...  more »

  • Perfect little shop. Friendly, down-to-earth folks will help you find anything you need. This is one of the only spots with consistently ripe avocados in town. You’ll pay for it, though—this place makes Whole Foods seem reasonable sometimes. They just updated the store layout, expanding the meat counter and adding a poke bar (December 2017). Love their sandwiches.
  • This is our new favorite local market. It has a great selection of produce and cheeses. Everything is fresh and well priced. They have these green chili tortillas that are surprisingly good and the home made salsa is on point. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Around Christmas, they do stock panatone which was a nice surprise. I haven't tried their prepared foods yet but everything looks delicious
  • I've shopped at this store a few times. If it weren't for the mildew on the dates I bought this time, I would have given it 4 stars. I like that I could find various kinds of organic, healthy foods here. It's comparable to Whole Foods and it has a neighborhood feel to it. Not sure if I would shop here again though, since food safety is very important to me.
  • For size, cleanliness, crowd factor, quality of meats and produce. This is a really solid mid-high end grocery store. Doubled the choices of vegan and organic compared with the industrial sized market. The cons are: parking on Haight street, very small passageways , long lines at checkout, during rush hour. Positives way outweigh negatives, just plan to search for parking and likely a few blocks away. Great suggestion of ethnic & spices.
  • I'm a regular there--it's a long-established neighborhood market with all kinds of great, and unusual, stuff. Great place for produce as well. And Mary's Chicken Salad is the best I've ever had.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
