West Oakland Is Getting a New Farmers’ Market

Much has been written about West Oakland’s status as a so-called “food desert,” and the good, community-minded folks who are working to bring healthy, fresh food options to a neighborhood where they aren’t plentiful presently. The latest such project is the Freedom Farmers Market, a weekly Saturday farmers’ market slated to debut in West Oakland, in the parking lot of the Brothers Kitchen soul food restaurant at 3000 San Pablo Ave., on August 31.
