MARKET SPOTLIGHT

Pet food at Driver's Market in Sausalito

Passionate about pet food, too

Check out our already popular selection of pet foods, now with a wider selection of nutritious cat and dog food from innovative makers including Wild Calling!, Orijen and Primal Pet Foods. Many products now offer large portions of fresh whole meats, liver, tripe, cartilage and marrow – mirroring the natural diet of our carnivorous friends. “Sometimes pet food gets overlooked by the industry,” our own Lauren Miller explains. “We’re putting it up to the same standards as everything else in the market.” Raw products such as  Smallbatch‘s  freeze-dried “sliders” or I and Love and You’s lamb dinner preserve nutrients that dogs are built to eat, and crave. Green Juice dog biscuits from Bocce’s Bakery mix spinach, kale, apples, spirulina and lots of mint, resulting in minty fresh breath. For more,  see our “Discoveries” selection lower on this page.

Spiderchase wine at Driver's Market in Sausalito

A delicious discovery from Sonoma

Our wine expert, Niesa Granger, is excited this month about a fantastic red wine blend from Spider Chase. The organically-grown blend of Cabernet, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec grapes “is densely rich but light on its feet,” Niesa says, with “classic notes” of cassis, tobacco and pencil lead. On the palate, it has fine acidity and soft tannins with flavors of black raspberry, chocolate and just a touch of herbaceous freshness. It can be drunk young or cellared for the next 5-7 years. It’s from the Fort Ross-Seaview region, which sits high above the fog line along the Sonoma Coast and is known for producing deeply concentrated, elegant wines due to the higher elevations. The wine was released in July, and only 56 cases are available. $28.99 a bottle.

Lauren Miller


Many of our colleagues are migrants from points East, but few have had as long a journey to Sausalito as the one Lauren made before joining the Driver’s team last year. A New Jersey native and 2011 graduate of Colgate in upstate New York, Lauren headed to Sierra Leone in the Peace Corps after graduation, and then returned Stateside to work on an unusual urban farm in Tampa, Florida, before heading to California. We’re all glad she got here. Read the whole story.
