Old Oakland Farmers’ Market

During our visit to MOCHA, Bekah and I got the chance to walk around the Old Oakland Farmers’ Market that was happening at the same time.  I love Farmers’ Markets and was excited to see what kind of vendors & booths were there.  IMG_5583

This one caught my eye.  I want to try the Seoul Dog the next time we’re there.IMG_5584IMG_5585I picked up a loaf of our favorite olive bread at Phoenix Pasta.  Their shop is located in Berkeley, but they have a booth at a number of farmers’ markets in the Bay Area.  (Phoenix Pasta was one of the stops on our FoodieMoon.)IMG_5588

The Hummus Guy has a good assortment of hummus, pita chips, and olives.  I picked up a bag of their lemmon pita chips (so yummy!), the Roasted Garlic & Chives Hummus, Cilantro & Jalepeno Hummus, Pitted Kalamata Olives and Spicy Green Olives.IMG_5587

For lunch, I ordered a chicken sandwich from the Roli Roti Gourmet Rotisserie truck.  The chicken was moist and very flavorful.  As a side, I got their Rosemary Roasted Potatoes sprinkled with sea salt, which was also very good and full of flavor.  IMG_5589IMG_5616Definitely looking forward to visting this farmers’ market again.  They have it on Fridays, from 8am-2pm, Ninth Street (between Broadway & Clay).

Some of my favorite Farmers’ Markets: Kapiolani Community College in Hawaii, Hillcrest Farmers’ Market in San Diego and our local San Leandro Farmers’ Market at Bayfair Center.

Do you have a favorite farmers’ market?  Please share!

  1. I love wandering around a farmers’ market too – so many different things to look at and try! One of my favorites is the one in Campbell, near San Jose. The Hummus Guy has a booth there too.

    One of the better well known ones in San Francisco is, of course, the Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Market. There’s so much there it’s almost overwhelming, what with the outside stalls, the food trucks, AND all the shops and restaurants inside the Ferry Building.

    I want to visit the one at Glen Park here in San Francisco too one of these Sundays.
