Ice Cream in SF: Bi-Rite Creamery
Bi-Rite Creamery is part of the Bi-Rite Family of Businesses, which began with the opening of Bi-Rite Market in 1940. Two longtime San Francisco pastry chefs started baking for Bi-Rite Market in 2002 in a rented kitchen, packing up our goods and driving them to Bi-Rite every day. When Bi-Rite Creamery opened in 2006, the goal was to provide something for the neighborhood that didn’t already exist; so in addition to baked goods, they created ice cream recipes from scratch.
They are the first ice cream shop in San Francisco to use Straus Family Creamery organic dairy, the first certified organic dairy west of the Mississippi; only 45 miles away, they supply all of the organic milk and cream for our ice cream and soft serve. Our flavors rarely have more than five ingredients, most of which are organic and locally-sourced.
