Berkeley Bowl West - 920 Heinz Avenue in West Berkeley. Deidre Joyner
Berkeley Bowl West has arrived! This is great news for foodies and folks who live in West Berkeley and North Oakland. (Berkeley Bowl West will also service the North Oakland community as it is a few blocks from the North-West Oakland and Emeryville areas.) The 140,000 square foot warehouse style building is filled with the most comprehensive array of produce for the most intricate and exotic of recipes. As I walked down every aisle, I felt like a kid in a toy store. The quality and the prices are superior to Wholefoods and you have to love that Berkeley Bowl is locally owned!
Berkeley Bowl West has a huge cheese, deli, hot prepared food section, bakery, bulk organic foods, produce, seafood - (including sashimi grade ahi and more.), grass-fed meat and aisles of national and local brand groceries. Berkeley Bowl West anchors the cool San Pablo West neighborhood of Berkeley and is walking distance to Sea Salt, Cafe Treiste, Scharffen Berger Chocolate and more. Fresh and healthy,(locally produced food), just what the doctor ordered!
