North Oakland Now 07.05.09
on July 5, 2009
Once you’ve recovered from the July 4 festivities, stumble downtown to check out Oakland’s fifth Grand Prix of Cycling. The event begins at 8 and lasts until 5 a.m. Or find some nourishment at the Temescal Farmer’s Market, which runs from 9 to 1 and is located at the DMV at 5300 Claremont. North Oakland recently acquired a new Farmer’s Market, as well. And if you want to see the Tribune’s slideshow of the East Bay celebrating the Fourth yesterday, click here.
