welcome to the marketplace

The Marketplace is home to ten locally owned and independently operated businesses that focus on gourmet, all-natural, sustainable, handmade, artisan and organic foods.

Located in a large brick building at the gateway to the historic Park Street shopping district in downtown Alameda, just across from Oakland, the Marketplace provides an open air, European market shopping experience.

Our award winning vendors offer quality foods and services in a clean, friendly and welcoming setting. Our inviting environment is energetic and never overcrowded, allowing you to amble from the abundant produce section to the cheese and wine shop for the perfectly paired wine and cheese. From there to the butcher offering organic and all natural meats, and sustainably sourced seafood to the bakery for a handmade, freshly baked loaf of bread. There’s also a restaurant specializing in locally sourced and freshly prepared meal options all conveniently prepared to go, a sushi bar, a coffee shop specializing in Fair Trade and organic coffee and teas, and even a massage booth.

Because we are a community of locally owned, independent businesses, all of our vendors and their staff can concentrate their knowledge and expertise to provide you with the richest culinary shopping experience available. The Marketplace is a modern celebration of great food and sustainable living, all under one roof.

It is these qualities that have allowed us to become a regional destination for food lovers throughout the Bay Area, and to be named the East Bay’s “Best One-Stop Shop for Foodies” by the
East Bay Express.
