Grand Lake Farmers Market
Highway 580 at the corner of Grand Ave and Lake Park Way, directly across from Grand Lake Theater in Oakland.
This winter, Grand Lake Farmer's Market will be publicly announcing its genetic engineering (GE)-free food policy, the first market in Oakland to do so!
To kickoff this phenomenal announcement, we will be holding panel discussions comprising experts from Oakland Institute, Center for Environmental Health, People's Grocery amongst others to discuss the potential impacts of genetic engineering and what our alternatives are for a healthier, just and sustainable food system.
We will also be screening "FUTURE OF FOOD" by local producer, Debra Garcia, and hosting a shopping tour on how to shop for healthier and safe food. Voted "Best Farmer’s 'Market" in the East Bay Express magazine, Grand Lake Farmer's Market has a great selection of organic produce and an excellent variety of food purveyors and artisans.
Event is free. Donations are greatly appreciated!
