Since we moved from San Francisco to the ‘burbs, Sigona’s Farmers Market has become my favorite grocery store on the Peninsula, hands down. Impeccable produce (a mix of local, organic, and conventionally-grown), awesome cheese selection (not Paleo approved, but eff it), Marin Sun Farms grass fed beef, organic and free-range poultry, a myriad of dried fruits and nuts (bulk raw coconut flakes for $2-something/lb!), unique and high quality specialty items, and great customer service – I love this place!
If you buy seasonally, the prices are really reasonable. Definitely join the Preferred Customer club so you’re privy to Sigona’s weekly specials and coupons. The coupons are for free stuff if you spend over $30, and you don’t need to print them out – just show the clerk the coupon on your mobile phone. Trust me, it’s very easy to spend more than $30, especially if you buy meat. When there’s a sale on the grass fed beef, the savings are pretty astonishing. For example, the grass fed ribeye is just $15.99/lb ($10 cheaper per lb than Pampero Ranch at the Mountain View Farmer’s market) and the grass fed ground beef is cheaper per pound than Costco across the street ($3.99/lb vs. $4.23/lb). Same thing with Rocky free-range chicken, it’s normally only $0.99/lb. You’d be crazy not to stock up!
If you are in the area, you should really check out this locally owned, family run grocery store. I just wish it was closer to my house…1
