Good Sources of Great Stone Fruit, Especially SF/Peninsula?

charliemyboy | Jun 18, 2011 10:13 PM

Five years or so ago I got some wonderful Santa Rosa plums from Bianchini's Market on Alpine Rd. in Portola Valley. I have not managed to find anything of that quality since, though I'll admit I've tried mostly stores rather than fruit stands or farmer's markets. I am particularly interested in plums and peaches. I have gotten some decent stone fruit at Berkeley Bowl but the Santa Rosa plums I got there weren't all that great and it's a long way from my mid-Peninsula home. I have checked some other threads and Sigona's is already on my list to try. I would appreciate other suggestions, especially which vendors at which farmer's markets on the Peninsula are most likely to have great plums and peaches.

Berkeley Bowl
2020 Oregon St, Berkeley, CA 94703

Bianchini's Market
3130 Alpine Rd, Portola Valley, CA
