Menu roundup: Try these SF farm-to-table eateries

The locavore movement was started in San Francisco by three Bay Area women in 2005, so it’s no surprise that farm-to-table menus continue to catch eyes and win hearts in these parts, long after “locavore” served as Oxford American Dictionary’s 2007 Word of the Year.

Buying local and knowing where your food comes from, how it’s grown and who is harvesting what satiates your hunger is no small matter. It informs the taste of the meal and the state of the mind — and eating with a clean conscience knowing the ingredients are sustainably grown by local hands just makes the food go down easier. Check out these BARTable farm-to-table eateries dedicated to bringing fresh seasonal delights to urbanites.
