Oak trees and gorgeous Bay views

Across the bridge from San Francisco, Oakland has a enough for a few pleasant days. The city is home to the USS Potomac, alongside the city’s museum, art galleries, and parks. Shopping is fun in Oakland too, especially if you have a passion for hats - there is no men’s hat store quite like The Hat Guys. For gifts, souvenirs, good dining, and other shopping opportunities, follow College Avenue - it’s a local favorite.

A huge grocery located in Oakland’s Latin neighborhood of Fruitvale, shopping here is like being transported to Mexico. I love exchanging recipes for nopales or chile relleno in the aisles with other shoppers and then enjoying a Mexican pastry or a taco at the deli with all the families out enjoying their Sunday meal.

Fruitvale Latin grocery store Editors' Note

Part of the Mi Pueblo Foods grocery store chain, Mi Pueblo is a grocery store with Latin-American roots. It carries many specialty foods that are not usually available in mainstream supermarkets. Many of the locals like to shop here for meats, baked goods, fresh masa, and other consumer products.

Mi Pueblo also has its own tortilleria, where you can enjoy affordable fresh tortillas on a daily basis. This is an interesting experience if you want to see how the locals like to shop.
