Today was a rainy Saturday in San Francisco. While that means my qi gong class at the top of Lafayette Park didn't take place, it did mean we had a couple of unexpected hours for a "field trip" we have wanted to take for a long time - a visit to Rainbow Grocery.
We spent a delightful couple of hours perusing the aisles, starting with an almost overwhelming array of bulk teas, flours of all types, nuts, oils, mushrooms, nuts and seeds and then moving into the aisles rich with numerous varieties of vegetarian food - condiments, soups, protein powders of various descriptions, aisle after aisle of supplements, and food of all types.
Rainy days have silver linings indeed. Ours today was our first (but not last) visit to Rainbow Grocery.
