This specialty food boutique holds one belief above all others: that everyone should be able to sample to their hearts content.What is it about candy bins the takes us want to stick our hands inside so badly? At Buyer's Best Friend, Scouts looking to sample are in friendly territory. In fact, this specialty store holds one belief above all others: that everyone should be able to sample to their hearts content.
Buyer's Best Friend arose out of a thriving wholesale business that connects producers directly with stores like Bi-Rite, Whole Foods and Rainbow Grocery. But with a storefront featuring the best of their catalogue, this spot can now get the goods directly to the people. With a full roster of chocolates and treats, oils and vinegars, condiments, kitchen ware and personal care, Buyer's Best Friend is a curated food boutique with an open mouth policy that makes tasting and trying a must. And with ultra-friendly staff and a cozy Victorian living room vibe (see if you can find all the vintage gramophones), you might find yourself planning a sleepover. Best friends forever!
