The Temescal Farmers Market, run by Urban Village Farmers’ Market (UVFM), is in the DMV Parking Lot: 5300 Claremont Ave. (cross street Carvour St.) Year-round, rain or shine.
UVFM have been proudly serving CA farmers, Temescal, and neighboring residents, and it’s local small business entrepreneurs for over 20 years.
The Temescal Farmers Market was also an early adopter of the Match Grant program which provides the opportunity for our neighborhood residents using EBT assistance an extra $10 free each week towards fresh fruits and vegetables. This program has been helping countless students, artists, single parents and low-income earners access to the same healthy and nutrient dense groceries everyone needs and deserves. We have also become known as Temescal’s Urban Village Family Market, as we have so many kids that have been growing up in our aisles, sampling peaches and strawberries and learning from being a part of a tight-knit community!
What many do not always realize is that our markets have also served as an incubator for so many of Oakland’s small business entrepreneurs and artists for the last 20+ years including Temescal favorites, Bakesale Betty, Cholita Linda, and Curbside creamery. From the inception of Blue Bottle Coffee to Blue Chair Jams, our farmers’ markets have been the birthplace and professional training wheels of so many local bakers, makers, and artists.
The Farmers’ Market features locally handmade soap and body product makers, jewelry, clothing, kitchenware, wool bedding, yarns and fibers, pottery, knife and yard tool sharpening, woodworkers, photographers, and painters…
Urban Village Markets are weekly pop-ups, year round, rain or shine.
Temescal Farmers Market, in the Claremont DMV parking lot, every Sunday from 9-1pm
