Where to find pickling or canning salt in San Francisco?
Have tried in vain to find pickling salt at Safeway, Lucky's or Rainbow. Is there any place in the City to find this? I have fresh produce now, and can not wait to order online.
Found Diamond Kosher salt at Andronico's. Happily it has no additives, so thanks for the recommendation.
Surprised you didn't find pickling salt at Safeway or Lucky, it's usually a bottom shelf item. I usually just look for the green box.
If you live near Rainbow Grocery, they usually have a fine grained (almost as fine as pickling salt) Mexican sea salt in the bulk section at a price similar to what you'd pay for kosher at Safeway. Much more convenient as it dissolves quickly in warm water, whereas with kosher you need to heat the water pretty hot, dissolve the salt, then wait for it to cool down in the fridge. Saves a half hour or more.

FoodMaxx has the best prices. The one here in Concord has the Diamond brand (I think that's which one it was; I poured it into quart jars and tossed the box).
