Comb Honey

SNDP Nov 19, 2007 03:50 PM

My local farmers' market no longer carries them, with some obscure explanation. Where could I get some comb honey in the SF Bay Area?

    I believe Rainbow Grocery carries it.

      I'm pretty sure I've seen it at Berkeley Bowl.

        I don't know if your local farmers' is the Alemany, but the honey guy used to sell it there. Haven't been there in a few years, though.

          Hector's Honey is fabulous, and I know is sold at the Sonoma farmer's market on Friday mornings.

            You can also make an appointment to purchase at the farm in Fulton.

              The 22nd and Irving market in SF carries it.

                    Two mid-peninsula spots - the Palo Alto Farmer's market (Saturdays, 8-12 behind main post office, Hamilton Avenue, through 12/15) and the Menlo Park Farmer's market (Sundays, 9:30-1:30, by Trader Joe's, year 'round).

                    Each market usually alternates between two suppliers... Jim Talboy and Tom von Tersch. Their honeys and comb honeys are excellent and are distinctive (taste, aroma) to a particular place... e.g., Mattole Valley (northern CA), Pescadero (wildflower I think), Half Moon Bay area, etc. They also have candles and Christmas ornaments too.

                      If you don't mind a little drive, Marshall's Honey at the American Canyon/Napa line on Napa Crossing Road has a great variety of honey and honeycomb.
