Jeannie's Jams In Oakland: A Midsummer's Night's Underground Market Party

A great place to hang my sign

What a wonderful event again in Oakland last weekend! It was an early fall evening market. We were in the same wonderful secure lot at 24th and Broadway except this time their were 80 vendors selling a vast array of homemade items. We rocked 8-10 different samples and got lots of kudos for my tasty jams and fancy JamStand setup. Some of my favorite vendors are the best Indo-Malay Food you've ever tasted, delicious fresh Vegan Tamales and Horchata from HellaVeganEats, I picked up more Nanny's Homemade Mustard, got some delicious Limoncello Marmalade from MoFoods, insane Jamaican chicken and extremely intense ginger brew by Jerk and gorgeous fresh tarts by Sweet Francisco - and there's so many more. Check out Forage.SF for the next market event and learn more about their wild food walks and dinners.
