local (RWC) honey/bee pollen (without a farmer's market?)

Autumn | Nov 1, 200407:49 AM

I live in the hills of Redwood City. I'd like to find the closest local honey to me, but the farmer's market season is dying down, and I never wake up before too late on the weekends anyways. I've seen San Mateo honey for sale at the little natural grocery store on California Ave. in Palo Alto, and my usual is Los Altos Hills honey that I buy at DiMartini's. Is this the best that I'll find? Other ideas on where to look?

Also, I've grown addicted to yogurt and fruit smoothies with bee pollen. I found a small container of bee pollen at the Vitamin Express store in Menlo Park, and I'll probably go back there unless I can find something better. But, again, any idea where I can find something really local? I don't mind driving a bit to actually buy it, but the closer the bees are to me, the better off I am. I'm not sure where all sells bee pollen, anyways.

Thanks for any help you can offer!
