19 neighbors want healthy food options at SF State – Bayview Hunters Point.

Bayview is starting to see some fantastic restaurants, but there are still liquor stores on every corner. Not only do the crowds that loiter on 3rd deter people from other neighborhoods from visiting the restaurants, but it also makes it more difficult for the new restaurants to obtain liquor licenses.

Contact Trader Joe's and Whole Foods to open in the Bayview. There are no existing grocery outlets in the area. Fresh and Easy closed its doors awhile ago. I moved out of the neighborhood due to the influx of liquor stores and no grocery outlets.

You might want to contact Fresh Approach who works with the Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association. They sponsor the Mission Bay Farmers Market on Wednesdays, the closest one to the Bayview. Fresh Approach teaches classes on budget shopping for healthy food and recipes to follow up.

OK, then how about incorporating more produce and other healthy foods into the inventory of the existing stores in the Bayview? Here is a toolkit for small businesses to do just that: www.thefoodtrust.org/php/progr...

Small scale farmers markets have been tried and have failed in the BVHP. Why? Because the backers did not take into account that most people don't shop that way anymore. Especially if you have a large family and are on a tight budget. This does not mean residents don't want or eat fresh produce and vegetables, it means that they are much more likely to shop where they can do it all at once and at 'value' prices. Also, the supporters would schedule the farmers market on Saturdays. The same day that the City’s biggest weekly farmers market is held at the Alemany site just a quick drive away.

I'm not sure if I like identifying the problem as the folks who actually live in the neighborhood (in this case, loiterers). They have never deterred me from going there. I don't think it's the residents (unless they're going to planning commission/land use meetings) that are stymieing the liquor licensing process. Public space is used in different ways. How about a couple of small-scale farmers markets (like those that happen in Civic Center, Haight-Ashbury, Noe Valley) on 3rd Street? A Peoples Grocery Truck going up to Hunters View or Double Rock?
