Some of Seattle’s favorite organic sandwiches are almost available in San Francisco. Homegrown Sustainable Sandwiches, the chain so dedicated to the farm-to-table ethos that it actually has its own farm in Washington, has made its way down south to 222 Battery St., bringing its sandwiches, salads, grain bowls, and soups with it. It officially opens Tuesday, January 17, but you can take a look around now at the store above.
Founders Ben Friedman and Brad Gillis have not yet opened a farm down here — thought plans are almost finalized — but in the meantime they have partnered with purveyors like Pt. Reyes Farmstead Cheese, Petaluma Creamery, Dick Taylor Chocolate, Sightglass Coffee, and Glaum Egg Ranch to make the offerings as local as possible. You can see the full menu below.
Homegrown’s organic ethos spreads farther than the food; the company also is sure to use reclaimed building materials and offsetting 100 percent of each store’s electric power usage with clean wind energy.
Homegrown will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., with two more locations coming very soon (Danville at 405 Railroad Ave. in late January and Lafayette at 3597 Mt Diablo Blvd. in early March).
