Where to buy sourdough starter in 'tourist' area of San Francisco?

I am headed up to San Francisco on the 31st for a week and have been asked by my mom to bring her back a good sourdough starter. We will be spending most of our time in the tourist areas so somewhere local would be great.

Can you suggest anywhere?

Thank you in advance!

    Here is a thread on San Francisco sourdough starter. When you get it home it will shortly become " where your home is sourdough starter."

      The tourist areas are where they sell it, so it shouldn't be hard. I think you'll find it in most of the gift/souvenir shops -- it comes in a big envelope-type package or if you want to get fancy, you can buy the starter with a crock to start it in.
