Mollie Stone’s is an institution in the Bay Area for foodies. With nine locations that boast some of the best, freshest local produce along with a host of natural products, this small chain of family-owned markets is the go-to place for healthy gourmands. But they also have every-day groceries so it’s a one-stop shop for everything from fresh fruit to deli meat to milk.
Their philosophy is to work with local producers and bring high quality products to their customers while also satisfying the need for staple foods and brand names. That’s something you don’t find at most markets!
You’ll get lost in their extensive cheese section and browsing through their unique collection of wine and beer. If you’re looking for something rare – don’t worry – you will find it here. Looking for some name-brand cereal? You’ll also find it here.
Established in 1985, the grocery store’s mission has always been to provide a variety of quality products in a positive environment for their customers and employees. How else do they do that?
Shopping in the city always proves to be challenging with or without a car so, to make their San Francisco customers’ lives easier, Mollie Stone’s has Mollie Bus – a service that will drive their customers home! And at their San Mateo location they provide a free, supervised play area for kids, called Mollieland, with trained staff that will watch your children while you shop. It’s every parent’s dream!
But what really sets Mollie Stone’s apart is their people. Their managers have anywhere from 8 to 67 years of experience and their entire staff strives to create the best experience for their customers. Better yet, Mollie Stone’s staff are paid livable wages with benefits. So, make sure you support good jobs here in the U.S. by shopping at Mollie Stone’s!
