Oakland Grand Lake Market
One of the places I love going on Saturdays is the Grand Lake Market by Lake Merritt in Oakland. It’s one of the largest farmers market around the Bay Area, selling all sorts of fresh produce, meat, ready-to-eat food, and other products.
It’s a great way to spend the morning: I’d take my time through the aisles, sampling fruit, and marveling at the quirkiness of heirloom tomatoes. A lot of times I’d go even though my kitchen is well-stocked already!
