    I saw honeycomb in a jar at Rainbow Market this week. Not sure if your looking for something fresher then that, but it is in the Mission.

      Not in the Mission but just across the Bay in Oakland is Khaled Almaghafi store/business - Bee Healthy Honey - on Telegraph & 36th Street. The honey is amazingly floral and prices are good from what I hear.

        There's a honey store right on the corner of 20th & Lexington in the Mission, but I can't remember the name and I've never been inside...

          It's Her Majesty's Secret Beekeper : http://www.hmsbeekeeper.com/

          Unfortunately according to the website it looks like they're closing down on August 31st. Too bad; very neat concept. Not sure if they sold honeycomb but plenty of honey and bees.

        Beekind is now in the ferry building. They might not have it on hand, but may bring from their Sebastopol store.

          A little closer to the Mission, there's a vendor at the Alemany Farmers market on Saturdays that sells a ton of varieties of honey and honeycomb. The guy who runs the stand is very friendly and informative.

            In the past when I lived in Noe we went there every Saturday and he had GREAT honey and wonderful honeycombs and was super nice to boot. Discussed his honeys and honey in general.

            Marshall's Farm (located in San Rafael) sells honey and honeycomb at the Ferry Building Saturdays and Tuesdays.

              Marshall is no longer at the Tuesday Ferry Building market. There's another local honey producer there, though, that also has honeycomb (and delicious honey).

              Edited to add: I just realized I have a jar of their honey on my desk, it's Snyders Honey from La Honda (San Mateo County). I bought the Tanbark Oak Honey from them -- it's a delicious medium-weight honey with a lovely reddish amber color. Tan-bark oak is a Pacific coastal forest species, and isn't really an oak at all -- it's actually related to the chestnut.

                  Funny you resurrected this thread -- I'm just about to add some Snyder's Toyon Berry honey to my morning yogurt.
