Nearly 210 residents of Cow Hollow and the Marina recently gathered to celebrate the 100-years-and-counting of Valentino Market (Buchanan and Filbert Streets). Owner Elie Chahwan was praised by many, including Supervisor Mark Farrell and SFPD Chief William Scott, for making the corner store into a community hub. As part of the celebrations, people guessed the prices of various grocery items from 100 years ago. The answers: A dozen eggs was 40 cents, a box of Kellogg’s cornflakes was only 8 cents, and you could get a whole chicken for 23 cents.

Congratulations to Chahwan and Valentino Market.
