Where to buy SS ingredients OR complete mix SF Bay Area?

What are good sources for raised bed soil mixes or bulk amendments in the San Francisco Bay Area? I'm looking for something to get tomatoes, peppers, and strawberries through the season. Does anyone have experience with American Soil's Ultra Bedding or Local Hero Veggie mixes?

Another option is buying a bag each of the four ingredients from, and adding them to an existing soil mix.

RE: Where to buy SS ingredients OR complete mix SF Bay Area?

I'm not sure where you are in the Bay Area. I buy all my soil and compost from Wheeler Zamaroni in Santa Rosa. I filled my beds with their "veggie mix" soil. This year, I've amended it with their Compost Plus compost. Have been extremely happy with both.

There's also Sonoma Compost company in Petaluma where friends have bought their Mallard Plus compost to amend their in-ground garden beds. And I know of another one in Santa Rosa but can't recall the name. They sell Mango Mulch which is supposed to be very good (Renee?).
