Our Story

Founded in 1969 The Real Food Company was one of the first dedicated natural food stores in San Francisco.

Whether you are looking for that new specialty food product, organic seasonal produce, fresh grass-fed beef, or natural vitamin The Real Food Company has it all. Join us and the community that calls Polk Street home and support local farmers and producers from all over the bay area. 

We look forward to serving you soon!

Update on Social Distancing Protocol

9/15/2020 - Social distancing protocols remain in effect at this time. We ask all customers to try and keep a distance of 6 feet and we will continue to limit the total number of people in the store at any given time. We have a hand sanitizer dispenser at the front operated by a foot pedal as well as clean paper towels to use. We are continuing to sanitize each hand basket before returning them for use. All customers are required to masks while in the store and waiting in line outside. As the mandate changes this will all adjust accordingly. 

Thank you for the continued support and understanding during these times. Stay well.
