They're not exactly of the Lower Mission variety, but Noe Valley has problems too, okay? Like big-box gourmet grocery stores that go out of business and their former hulking shells that are left to languish, lonely and unoccupied amidst rising rents. The former Real Foods at 3939 24th Street is the latest subject of a local flyer campaign to "take back" the neighborhood. Take it back for... a gym perhaps? A gourmet fishmonger? Oh, the possibilities are endless -- that is, if you can afford them.
