Southbay getting a trickle of East Bay and SF treats

Philz coffee is coming to Cupertino on Stevens Creek near DeAnza

Scream Sorbet (along with Roli Roti) is at the Saratoga Farmer's Market on Saturdays. I had the grapefruit and tasted the beet flavor. The cup is quite tiny for $3.

Movable Feast Food Trucks will be at the Alameda Funeral Home (?!) on Saratoga Sunnyvale Road in Saratoga on the last Saturday of each month from 4-8 PM.

  1. And Scream Sorbet has been sighted in the far South Bay too. Two weeks ago I was at opening day at the Saturday morning farmers market in Morgan Hill and saw the stand there. Also noticed Achadinha Cheese of Petaluma . Two high-priced but also very high quality producers.

      This might be old news here, but Scream Sorbet also appears at the Mtn View farmers' market on Sundays. (I swear, their pistachio sorbet beats out any pistachio ice cream I've had! Wonderfully nutty, but without added almond essence, which always detract from the flavor, imo.)

      Also, Achadinha has been at the Sunnyvale farmers' markets on Saturdays. I've enjoyed their curds (a mix of cow and goat, though the goaty aspect is barely perceptible), Capricious (a great, goaty Parmesan analog), and Broncha (another goat-cow mix).

        Maybe old news, but Scream's pistachio sorbet is always worth a mention! It's the one flavor that always spins heads. Checked its farmers market webpage and while Mountain View is listed neither Saratoga nor Morgan Hill are.

        Does Achadinha sell fresh squeaky curds or are you referring to its feta?

        1. re: Melanie Wong

          Yes, the curds are the "squeaky" type, not feta, which I haven't tried yet. The curds are pretty mild, but make a pleasant snack; sometimes I shred them on top of pizza, yum.

            Ooh, I have to get some of Achadinha's curd!
