Walk into The Bikery after school some afternoon and you won’t believe the energy of love, warmth, generosity, and just generally whimsical good times. Plus, bikes, awesome youth programs, earn-a-bike, open shop, women/trans/genderqueer night, Spanish speakers night, classes, repairs, sales, etc. And plus, (a big plus), people of color, queer, trans, women, youth led. It’s a jewel.
The Food Mill is a true community institution with tons of bulk goods and a wide-variety of veggie “meat”. If you’ve lived here all your life, you know (and love) their cookies in the distinctive long rectangle shape. Going strong and family owned since 1933, you couldn’t get more Oakland.
After a visit to 504 I stopped into the new Homespun Bikes. Repairs, classes, locally made bike gear and urban gardening supplies, and coming soon, bikes!
The Old Oakland Farmers Market is the place to go for affordable, fresh veggies, including a wide-variety of Asian greens and other veggies. Fridays, 8-2.
