Swans Market Reviews & Ratings
Anna's Seafood stand. No bad moves here. they are there every Friday am, old Oakland farmers market. Get there early, things go fast, once you try the products, you will see why! Great news, they are now at the Jack London market on Sundays!.. So, if you miss on Friday, catch them on Sunday. Just get there. It will all make sense once you do!...
Location - 5/5 Variety - 5/5 ( Fresh meat to nice restaurants ) Washrooms - 3/5 ( Not the best ) - The place is perfect after visit to weekly market.
This is the place in Old Oakland. Wonderful market lots of great shops... I love this place!
Great place to buy all things pork, with a few beef and chicken products.
I patronized the meat store. I like their sausages. It was my first visit to Cupcakery and the cupcakes are first class.
