The Old Oakland Farmer’s Market is a market based in Oakland that features very fresh seasonal produce, breads, oils, organic foods and yummy nibbly samplings of food.
This is completely sponsored by the City of Oakland that is highly accessible and entertaining with live music. There also is a featured food stand, like tamales or hot links.
It is centered in the Historic District of Old Oakland which allows for a communal, historic reflection and access. If you would just like to leave the house, be present in a public space, people watch, are shopping for your household, picking a meal for your lunch hour, or simply just want to experience Oakland, this is the place to do it.
