Delicious Market Recipes & Free Seasonal Tasting | Jack London Square

With more than 40 vendors, the Jack London Square Farmers Market offers local produce, food craft products, and breakfast and lunch options.

The Jack London Square Farmers Market is operated by CUESA at Oakland’s Jack London Square on Sundays from 10 am to 3 pm, year round, rain or shine. Founded in 1989, the Jack London Square Farmers Market has deep roots in Oakland, providing a vibrant waterfront marketplace of local farms, food crafters, and restaurants for Bay Area families.

Each week, visit the CUESA Food Shed for a free seasonal tasting, and to pick up easy and delicious market recipes to take home. Bring your kids by the CUESA Kids’ Corner for crafts and other fun activities for the whole family.

Customers using CalFresh (EBT) at the farmers markets can double their dollars (up to $10 per market day) through the Market Match program, which offers free market coins redeemable only for fruits and vegetables. Visit the CUESA Info Booth to learn more.

Join them at CUESA’s Jack London Square Farmers Market in Oakland for a Market to Table Cooking Demonstration with Paul Canales of Duende featuring the seasonal bounty of the Jack London Square Farmers Market.

Driven by his passion for improvising with local ingredients and Mediterranean-based cultural influences, chef Paul Canales opened his own Spanish influenced restaurant, Duende, located in the Uptown neighborhood of Oakland in 2013. The depth and diversity of Canales’s experience, before he found his calling in the kitchen, shaped his approach to both cooking and collaboration. A native Californian, Canales graduated with honors from California State University in his hometown of Fresno, where he studied literature, philosophy, political science, and history. After college, Canales traveled to Italy, England, and Taiwan, eventually landing in Washington D.C., where he served as a Congressional intern. Returning to California, he was hired into the Accelerated Management Program at Pacific Bell in San Francisco and rose quickly through the ranks in sales, marketing, and strategic and business planning.

All demos take place at the CUESA Classroom (in the Palm Plaza at Embarcadero West and Webster Street, adjacent to the Info Booth) and are free and open to the public, with samples and recipes for all.
