Farmers Markets are a great place to do your produce and gourmet shopping, mingle with your neighbors, get to know the farmers and vendors and connect with where your food comes from.
Here are my favorite Thursday, Saturday and Sunday Farmers Market's in Oakland and Berkeley:
North Berkeley Farmers Market - from 3pm-7pm. On Shattuck Ave & Rose St. in the Gourmet Ghetto. Surprise, this Market is ALL ORGANIC!! WEBSITE
Oakland Farmers Market at Grand Lake on Lake Park Ave in Oakland - from 9am-1pm. In 2010 the East Bay Express voted this favorite Farmer's Market and that hasn't changed. WEBSITE
Downtown Berkeley Farmers Market on the frontage road next to CVS at 2300 Shattuck Ave - from 10am-3pm. This market was recently forced to move from the Shattuck Commons but still boasts some pre-made food and some of the most dedicated vendors. WEBSITE
Cuesa's Farmers Market at Jack London Square on Broadway in Oakland - from 10am-3pm. Taking place rain or shine this is the market to take the kids and do more than shop. There is live music, yoga and activities for kids and of course, you're at Jack London Square. WEBSITE
