Fresh Jackfruit in the bay area

  • d

There has to be a store somewhere in the bay area that sells fresh jackfruit, but I have yet to discover it (at least the durians can be located easily by nose).

Any hints would be appreciated.

    Berkeley Bowl. 2020 Oregon St. off of Shattuck. You might want to give them a ring to confirm, but I have seen jackfruit here in the past.

    Hounds, I have worked in retail grocery for 14 years, 12 of those have been working in produce. I try to make at least one trip from Napa to Berkeley a month to shop. I would go for the produce alone, and I can cherry pick whatever I want from where I work! They have the biggest most complete produce stand I have ever seen! There is always something there I haven't tried, and I try to sample 1 or 2 new fruits or veggies per trip. If you don't find what you want ask for it! This market is hugely dedicated to making as much product available their customers as possible.

      Try Ranch 99 in Daily City or in El Ceritto(East-bay). They carry Jackfruit.
