Noriega Produce, San Francisco
The proprietor, Dimitri, is like the mayor of the Sunset. He always has a smile and knows you by name. He and his family run the best little health-food market. It’s tiny, but you don’t need to go anywhere else. Plus they’re Greek and they always have fresh baklava. 3821 Noriega St., (415) 564-0370
