SF Weekly's Description

The dumbest move a new city resident can make at Rainbow is to wander in, head over to the customer service desk, and ask if the store has a meat counter. If you do this, you're in for a lecture about animal rights, the food chain, and so forth. That said, Rainbow makes up for its lack of salami and sausage with one of the very best produce sections in town, an enticing cheese department, a huge assortment of bulk goods, and fresh bread from the Bay Area's best commercial bakeries. It's basically a vegetarian's one-stop picnic shopping trip.

    Worker-owned, with the freshest local produce outside of the farmer's market. Great cheese selection. Bulk area is expansive and prices are fair. -Preeti Mistry, Top Chef
