Oakland-Grand Lake Farmers Market
Saturday morning farmer's market by the lake, one of the mainstays of the area.
Skip the trip to the grocery store and spend a day at the Grand Lake Farmers Market instead. This massive farmers market is the place to find great produce, delicious prepared foods, hard goods and more every Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm year round.
Walk around and try the samples. enjoy some live music. People watch. The main thing to buy here are seasonal fruits and veggies. You can also get fresh or smoked fish, craft olive oil, and hand made cutting boards if you like spending $$$$. There are also some hot food vendors, but none that I’d go…
Weekend Farmers market with great eat's and live music. Great day for the family! Located across street from Lake Merritt.

“[Alameda] Well, Oakland actually. Its a 30 minute bus or 15 minute drive away. A beautiful 3 or so mile walking and biking route around the lake. Best viewed around sunset. Can be romantic on warm nights (which unfortunately are rare).”
