“In the heart of Oakland's China town in the middle of historic Old Oakland, the market is one of many, many wonderful sites in this area. Check out Swans Food court on non-market days, District Bar for a fancy, expensive cocktail. Market is every Friday 11am-2:00pm. Top notch! ”

“I love this place for foot reflexology hour-long massages. You keep your clothes on, in a group room, and get a great massage for under $40. Go early and ask for their housemade brewed tea to sip in the front waiting area. Their full body massages are also really good and less expensive than traditional places.”
