Care2 Review: We love this market!
By: Rebecca E. (Jul 20, 2009)
JLS is an underdog here. I admit that it doesn't have quite the stunning selection as other markets in Oakland/Berkeley but it's a refreshing change of pace. The higher ratio of old school purveyors who chat you up and swap recipes : crowds of hipster/hippies is well worth it. The berry guy always makes me a sweet deal on flats of raspberries and asks after my jam. If you can catch the apple guy in season, he'll mix and match the perfect applesauce or pie blend. There are always a few things here I can't get elsewhere like pistachios. I usually see live music and recipe demos. Bonus: scenic walk along the water from easy parking.
