Star Grocery is a to-die-for deli meets extravagant local produce selection (plus all the usual grocery store suspects). This tiny little market is unassuming and easy to miss, but this warm neighborhood gem is a must-stop. Best of all, it offers the indie grocery vibe without the blown-out indie price markups—products at Star are often cheaper than a big chain grocer.
Take BART to Rockridge (approximately 20 minutes from San Francisco) then walk or take a bus to Claremont Avenue.
