Making a birthday package for my cousin in Oregon. Definitely throwing in some Peet's...what would you send that ships well? She's "gluten free" but I've caught her with cookies and crackers..suggestions? Thanks!

        Where can I find them before Saturday? Mollie Stone's? Whole Foods?

          There's a list of retailers on their Web site, looks liked they added them to the bottom as they came in so the SF places aren't all grouped together:

          Cider balsamic and chutney from the Apple Farm. Stuff from Mariposa Baking. http://www.mariposabaking.com

          Peet's is a national chain now, they have lots of stores in Oregon.

            I'd go with Blue Bottle over Peets at this point anyway.

            La Cocina sells gift boxes. Everything made in SF.
            http://www.lacocinasf.org/lacocinastore/

            Alternately, you could visit their kiosk in the Ferry Bldg and pick and choose.
            http://www.ferrybuildingmarketplace.com/lacocina_merchant.php

            Bonus: It's right across from Mariposa bakery kiosk which is gluten-free.

                  Darn this globalization thing! 15 years ago I could surprise family and friends living in colder climes with treats they otherwise could not find. Now you can find almost anything anywhere.

                  I like to send Scharffenberger Cacao "Nibs," which I munch on, use for cooking, ice cream topping, and have even used them in making homebrew. And I do not know where else to find them outside of the bay area (not that I've looked). I buy them at Monterey Market
                  http://shop.scharffenberger.com/Roast...

                  Maybe something made with persimmon?

                    Scharffen Berger is no longer local. It was bought by Hershey and they closed the local factory.

                    June Taylor Jams--esp. her marmalades w/ more unique citrus that you won't find in more commercial products--like blood orange or meyer lemon.

                    You can get them @ the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market or the list of retail stores below:

                    http://www.junetaylorjams.com/where/r...

                    She also ships gift packages directly--I did that for foodie cousins in Tennesse--a variety of jams, marmalades, and syrups--and it arrived nicely packed and was a big hit.
