Find that winning cocktail at Berkeley’s new weekly Beehive Market. Unlike a traditional farmers market, it brings together food, fashion, and home goods — all with a sustainable bent.
On any given Saturday (10 a.m.-3 p.m.), look for fresh meat, produce, and to-go fare (Blue Ocean, Holy Cow, Frog Hollow), as well as a food court (Oaxacan tamales, Zen Grill’s Filipino specialties). After you’ve had your fill, browse recycled vinyl bags from Elbow Grease, antique housewares from Home 101, and RabbitEars pet supplies.
Founders Isaac Cronin and Julia Fry also just launched Tuesday wine dinners, featuring vintners from Oakland, Berkeley, and Emeryville (next up is Periscope Cellars). Held in the couple’s loft (around a cutting table from Fry’s former life as a Nicole Miller designer and an upcoming fashion venture), the dinners pair three to four wines with Canvas Underground’s of-the-moment cuisine. And that sounds sweeter than honey.
The Beehive Market, 1701 San Pablo Avenue, between Francisco and Virginia Streets, Berkeley (510-644-9517 or thebeehivemarket.com). To purchase tickets for the September 28 wine dinner ($55), call 510-644-9517 or go to eventbrite.com.
