If you wake up on Christmas morning and realize you forgot to grab the shrimp/whipped cream/fruitcake your great aunt Marian asked you to bring to the family holiday celebration, don’t have a panic attack while you’re opening gifts. While many of San Francisco’s prime food outlets are closed (Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Rainbow, Bi-Rite and Real Foods will all be shuttered), a few of SF's best grocery storesare open for a limited time during the big day. Wondering where to get eggs for the eggnog you decide to make at the last minute? Need kale for your kale caesar? Here to save the holiday are 14 grocery stores open on Christmas day.
