SATURDAYS year round from 10am-2pm
The Oakland Community Farmers' Market is a new farmers' market located in the Laurel District of East Oakland. The market was started and is maintained by a local nonprofit organization called Oakland Food Connection that strives to promote nutritional awareness, access to healthy foods and the connections between people and our planet. The market includes certified organic produce from J&P Organic Farm based out of Salinas, CA and a youth-led prepared food booth called the Purple Lawn Cafe. We are always looking for new vendors, give us a call if you're interested!
I would rather support local farmers than shop at the grocery store because the produce is fresher and cheaper.
The Oakland Food Connection's Farmers Market does a great job serving the Laurel district of Oakland. In a neighborhood that has experienced much economic blight, the Farmer's Market brings folks out on foot, to enjoy food, music and community events every week.... [more]
