Your Wish Came True: Hodo Moves into a Store Near You

"When will I be able to buy your tofu at my grocery store?" our farmers' market customers have asked us for years.  Up until this Fall, our production capacity limited us to a handful of stores.  But no longer.  


Our beanery is built!  Our custom-made equipment effortlessly grinds beans and coagulates milk!  And Team Tofu has mastered the craft of wiggling fresh curds into cheese cloth-lined molds at ten times their original rate! 


In December we joined other local artisan foods on the specialty shelves of 4 markets.  


Berkeley's bustling Monterey Market on Hopkins enthusiastically cleared a section for our whole product family of fresh blocks, silk, yuba, milk, and tofu salads.  


San Francisco's friendly Blue Fog market-cafes (located in the Western Addition at California and Divisidero, and the Pacific Heights at Broadway and Gough) carry our ready-to-eat salads in their deli and grab-and-go cases.  


And in the Outer Richmond, Thom's Fresh Organics launched our soy milk, silken tofu, yuba, and tofu salads.  I recommend filling up on Chinese pastries from across the street to avoid going crazy and over-shopping at Fresh Organics!


Is your favorite grocery store not on this list?  Stay tuned: we are expanding into more this month (to be revealed in a future blog soon!).  In the meantime, feel free to email us the name of your neighborhood store, or your weekend destination store for exotic ingredients required by new recipes!  We'd love to make eating fresh tofu daily easier for everyone!
