I'm sorry I underestimated you. I've been hearing good things about you for a while now and only recently set out to see for myself.
Last weekend, I visited the Grand Lake Farmers Market. Holy heaven and happy produce. Everything was beautiful and yummy and fresh and local. (If you didn't know, peaches are in season. You should get yourself to a farmers market ASAP and get some samples.)
The one thing I felt let down about was the lack of coffee booth options at the market itself. However, I later found this to be a blessing in disguise because I had to venture down Grand Ave. to find a latte. Grand Ave. has SO much to offer:
- The hippest coffee shop I ever did see.
- Camino, a restaurant I'm dying to get back to.
- Alchemy, a one stop shop for everything to outfit your stylish bar cart.
So, thank you Oakland for a beautiful Saturday morning. I can't wait to see you again soon!
Have you explored the East Bay at all? What are your favorite East Bay activities?
