Hellooooo Berkeley Bowl

Have you ever been to Berkeley Bowl, the independently owned grocery store? It's like Whole Foods and Andronico's, with its organic and natural forte, but with much better, reasonable prices.

The best thing about Berkeley Bowl? They have everything you can imagine! From the mundane flour (many different types, mind you) and sugar, to the exotic green almonds and quail eggs.

And the worse? Horrible parking, narrow aisles and way too many people. It's always a feat going to Berkeley Bowl, you always snake your way through all the people and carts.

Thankfully, Berkeley Bowl listened, heard our cries and opened a brand new store in West Berkeley at Eighth x Heinz.

Opening day was June 4 and I was there to soak up the gorgeous store. Everything was so neat, organized and clean. Like its parent store, the variety of produce, meat, seafood, bulk items, cheese and prepared food is extensive. The aisles are much wider, enabling two carts to pass without bumping into each other. And with over 100 parking spaces, you'll never feel the anxiety of trying to find a spot.

As part of their grand opening, they're giving away one free reusable bag with every purchase. So green. :)
