Oysters at the Temescal market....what! hella!
Walking into the Sunday Temescal market this week, we did the double-take. What, Hog Island oysters? Here, now? Have you always been here? 'No, this is our first week, but we'll have an oyster bar set up really soon,' the cute, quirky girls behind the table reassure. Y'all know what this means? I can roll out of bed late Sunday am, walk a couple blocks (bringing my orange juice etc), and dine on fresh oyster shooters for brunch. (!!!)
I love Oakland.
I saw her there yesterday too. When I asked her what she was doing there today if she had no raw bar, she said that she had samples, but I had to ask her for one. So, I asked her for one. Got a small "sweet water" oyster. I don't really know oysters, but I found this one rather salty for my taste. But, I am looking forward to them opening up.
When I asked when the raw bar would be opening, she said it would be in two weeks. At first, I thought she was hedging a little, but she later said it would "definitely" be open in two weeks.
Also, Scream sorbet mentioned they would be opening a store at 52nd and Telegraph soon.

At the Temescal Street Fair this weekend I saw signs for the new Scream Sorbet store -- it'll be around 51st and Telegraph, in between Bakesale Betty's and Pizzaiolo, and the signs say that it opens in June.
