Happy to see Jack London Sq with wonderful new restaurants and proud of the true community spirit of vendors using local purveyors. A lovely experience overall, despite the rain, however, disappointed that some vendors were not open.

Significant servings of an array of tastes and styles. Be prepared to eat hearty and to learn tidbits about Oakland history and about food. A delightful three and a half hours.

It's a cool tour. I just think that they could've given WAY more information (esp. historical and architectural). It was pretty light on these topics. I thought it was the folks from Edible Excursions but it turned out to be their competitors, who...continued
