We founded Foragers Present on our love of quality food and our passion for artisan brands. When you shop with us, you are supporting unique producers and brands dedicated to producing quality goods with fine craftsmanship. We source locally and from around the globe from small as well as larger classic producers. We are located on Valencia Street in San Francisco's Mission District - the only 2 mile stretch of independent boutiques in the country and birthplace to some of the Bay Area's world-renowned independent brands.
Amazing food comes from delicious ingredients, and great ingredients are hand crafted by small producers. We often host events and workshops featuring local entrepreneurs. Our cafe is open daily and offers made to order bites and beverages that highlight the specialty producers we feature in store.
We love the art of discovery and are constantly searching for new and interesting goods for gifting. Along with some of our favorite staples, we offer a rotating, curated selection of specialty items ready for gifting and are always happy to help you customize your own bespoke assortment of goods.
Looking at all of their artisanal products which fill the shelves from top to bottom got me so excited that I couldn’t help but touch, grab, smell, and test out everything they had. And yes, I did say artisanal. Foragers Present prides itself on selling only the best products made from the best quality. Although they may have a wide range of culinary items from drinks to utensils to your everyday kitchen needs, they are not a grocery store. I talked to the founder, Cynthia Solis, and learned that the dedication Foragers Present has to quality products is much bigger and more meaningful than a simple bodega. Foragers Present is a culinary lifestyle boutique & cafe with a variety of home goods (and delicious bites!)
