Most of the convenience stores charge higher in this area for basic needs: bread, milk, etc. And most times the produce is not fresh; I have even been sold strawberries with mold on them, and didn't realize it until I got home! The grocery store is 4 blocks from my apartment so I only shop there now for all my groceries, and the shuttle to my college campus is 2 blocks away!
I really enjoy San Francisco and it has a lot to offer. However, it's been gentrifying very quickly and the intense socioeconomic inequality is very present, which is very problematic to me.
