Popular SF grocer Konstantinos “Gus” Vardakastanis of Haight Street Market killed by hit-and-run driver

An untold story is how San Francisco is overridden with crime and the how the quality of life has plummeted. 
It’s the by-product of what happens with Democrat governance. 

San Francisco Chronicle reports the public parklet in front of Haight Street Market in San Francisco was the scene of a makeshift wake Friday after news that the store’s founder, Konstantinos “Gus” Vardakastanis, was killed doing what he loved most: searching for the best fruit and vegetables for his customers.

“He died with his boots on,” said longtime customer and neighbor Jennifer Brokaw, praising Haight Street Market as “one of the reasons we still live in the city and haven’t fled.”

Vardakastanis was killed early Friday when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver while crossing a street in the city’s Bayview neighborhood, where he had gone to the San Francisco Produce Market to peruse and purchase goods for his stores. The 57-year-old co-owner of Haight Street Market, Noriega Produce and Gus’s Community Market died at the scene of the collision, according to the San Francisco medical examiner.
