Have a Delicious Summer at These Five Food Festivals
San Francisco might be the epicenter of the Bay Area food scene, but Oakland is definitely gaining ground. The Eat Real Festival is the town’s biggest food celebration, set in picturesque Jack London Square by the waterfront. The festival’s tagline (“Eat it. Make it. Grow it.”) speaks to its focus on homegrown and handmade food. Expect to see unique food trucks, classes on charcuterie and jam making, demonstrations by local chefs and food artisans, and live music—all in all, a perfect way to cap off the summer.
