After a trip to San Francisco last year, I read an article in “Fresh Cup” about an herb shop called Homestead Apothecary. I was a little bummed that I had missed an opportunity to check it out for myself. So of course, I made it a priority to get over to Oakland on my trip to Cali last week. I was not disappointed!
