The Foods Hounds Fight For
Special limited-edition treats for picky palates.
Many places in the Bay Area have specialties they only make once a week or sell in limited quantities that run out fast. A rundown of some of the coveted items:
• Liberty Bakery’s challah, only offered on Fridays. “It usually sells out quickly, and it happens when I’m at work,” says BernalKC. “It’s not crunchy or artisanal (other than the braiding)” and “on the less gummy end of the challah spectrum.”
• White Crane Spring Ranch’s The Mix, at the Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market. “It looks like a spring mix, but it is all herbs and makes a wonderful salad,” says rworange. “The vendor keeps it in a cooler in the back and you just have to know it is there.” Get there early to snag it.
• Two Dog Farm’s tomatoes at the Civic Center Farmer’s Market. “Get there early and sharpen your elbows,” says david kaplan. They’re available “June-ish to October-ish.” Get there before 10 a.m. adds artemis.
