Re: Your Corner Market - Balboa and 26th

Two of our neighborhood markets were the Taraval Quality Market, (SE corner of 27th & Taraval,) and Mitchell's Market, (SW corner of 27th & Taraval.) I think Mitchell's first succumbed to post-war "progress," probably when the owners passed on. The Taraval Quality provided home delivery, using a well-traveled gray-green Dodge truck with roll-up curtains on both sides of the truck bed.
