California Voices: My Favorite Female-Founded Brands in San Francisco
A San Francisco local dishes on the best women-owned businesses in her neighborhood, from bespoke shops to top restaurants.
Alexandra is a loyal Bay Area native. Born and raised in Walnut Creek, she went on to attend UC Berkeley and live in San Francisco. She now works in marketing for a South San Francisco–based, female-founded brand of tea tonics.
Alexandra spends 90 percent of her time in S.F. on Divisadero Street. You can find her at Bi-Rite Market or Alamo Square Park, eating the sandwich she just bought at Bi-Rite and hanging out with the dogs. When she’s not eating and drinking on Divis, she’s running through Golden Gate Park or sweating it all out in yoga. Feeling a sense of pride in local business, she shows her support the best way she knows how: snacking locally.
