$10 for $20 Worth of Local Artisan Food, Candy, and Gifts

The store is a hub for rare and specialty foods, such as disks of stone-ground chocolate infused with guajillo chili or cinnamon, both found in the Taza chocolate Oaxacan sampler ($10.99); Saporoso Riserva balsamic vinegar that is aged 8 years in Italy by the Malpighi family ($29.99); 12-ounce bags of freshly roasted coffee by Portland's acclaimed Stumptown Coffee ($14.99); and agave-sweetened Amella Caramels ($7.99). All visits offer complimentary samples of almost everything in the store; if something isn't available for sampling, visitors are invited to request a taste before purchasing.

Buyer’s Best Friend

Just like a real best friend, Buyer’s Best Friend makes shoppers' lives easier and more refined. The company, which deals directly with wholesale artisanal retailers, scours the world and local markets before incorporating only the worthiest goods into an inventory the Bay Guardian called "among the best gourmet food selections in the city." Everything from smoked salts to organic coffee to gluten-free bread mixes are on offer, and most in-store items are available for sampling, according to SF Weekly. Nonfood items range from organic skincare products to dish sets made out of bamboo.

Buyer’s Best Friend isn’t only for casual shoppers, however. The storefront's online portal serves as a curated aggregate of specialty-food wholesalers, enabling some 5,000 buyers across the country to compare prices, compare policies, and place multiple orders on artisanal products from a single site.
