Grand Lake Farmers' Market

Saturdays, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

Grand Lake Farmers' Market
Equal parts fresh-produce hub, outdoor food court, and neighborhood block party, the Grand Lake Farmers’ Market (Grand Ave. and Lake Park Ave.) really does have something for everyone: live music for the head-bobbing set, a bouncy house for the kids, and high-quality people-watching for the rest of us. Mostly, though, the market functions as one helluva one-stop shop, whether you’re putting together a romantic picnic or picking up groceries for the week. Depending on the season, highlights might include Flavor Queen pluots from Kashiwase Farms, colorful heirloom tomatoes from Wild Boar Farms, a small wheel of aged triple-cream cheese from Cowgirl Creamery, and whatever happens to be on special at the Prather Ranch butcher stand. While you’re at it, grab a falafel salad from the LIBA Falafel food truck and some pork knuckles from Roli Roti. Just like that, Saturday’s lunch is served. free

The Shout

Second Monday of every month, 7:30 p.m.
510-922-1507

From a man whose family ended up in the Federal Witness Protection Program to a woman who once had a job caring for a fortune-telling chicken in Guinea Bissau to someone's unforgettable encounter with a bee on a golf course, the stories told at The Shout are the stuff of fiction, but drawn from real life. Much like The Moth StorySLAM events, The Shout is crowdsourced storytelling: Stories have few guidelines besides being true, less than ten minutes long, and worth the time it takes to tell the tale. Featured storytellers are selected beforehand, but audience members can put their names in a hat in hopes of sharing their own six-minute yarns. Join hosts Rami Margron and Cassidy Brown at Grand Lake Coffee House (440 Grand Ave., Oakland) on the second Monday of every month for some riveting tidbits of real life. 7:30-9:30 p.m., $5-20.
