Persian Groceries in San Francisco

I have been forced to order online for many of Sadaf products through the website www.sadaf.com. They are based out of LA and delivery is prompt by UPS. I cook mainly Armenian/Persian foods and have yet to find a Persian market in San Francisco over the past 6 years. I have tried the UN Market but find their stock somewhat limited. Alborz the restaurant on Sutter used to have a retail market for ingredients but that has been closed for sometime. I also can't find Tilda rice in large 10 lb bags since I prefer to buy basmati in paper/plastic type bags and not burlap. I used to travel to Hatam in San Rafael and still go to Zand in Albany which does have many Persian food stocks including frozen chopped herbs for GhormeSabzi which I like better than the dry Sadaf product. I am sure Sadaf online has the plums you were looking for. Their website lists all the products in the Sadaf line. If any one knows where I can buy Persian items closer than Albany I would love to hear of the store especially a place to buy basmati not in burlap. Thank you
