Only a few years after young families created a real estate boom in San Francisco's Bernal Heights neighborhood, another is happening in the neighborhood -- in the food business.

And not just new restaurants, although those are cropping up and adding unique tastes to residents' culinary choices, but also butcher shops, specialty food stores and a farmers market that still balances variety with affordability.

"You just never know what's going to crop up," Heights resident Stephanie Rosenbaum, 42, said of the green garbanzos she recently found at a farmer's stand.
