If you’re hanging out in Dolores Park, having Bi-Rite Market next to you is like having access to Hermoine Granger’s handbag - if that handbag only held an infinite amount of picnic supplies. Come here and get meat, cheese, and bread from Acme, Jane, and Firebrand. If you just want something small to snack on, grab a seed pretzel and use a few free samples from the butcher to tide you over. And if you want something a little more substantial, get a sandwich from the deli. We like the one with prosciutto, mozzarella, and arugula pesto on a crusty baguette.
