Mandela Food Cooperative

Overall rating: 4.5 stars 2 Reviews
Easy Bay food co-op. Very small store in a often ignored part of town. Offers bulk and fresh produce, and the deli also serves hot food for lunch with vegetarian and vegan options. more-less

A nice little grocery store

I like this place. If you're looking for a locally-made to-go lunch or some Califia Farms almond milk by the West Oakland BART, this is the only place to be. Otherwise, you'll have to settle for getting something from the 99 Cent store or the Subway. This is way better. I love the vibe here. There aren't very many employees so you might as well get to know them. I'm often there right when they open and people are sleepy and struggling to make coffee and I find it to be very casual and charming.

Pros: non-chain community store, vegan to-go lunches, vegan specialty items
Cons: small
  • mostly-vegetarian

Best Little Organic Market EVER!

I love this store. It's perfect and well priced and has great, helpful, always friendly staff. Go here 1st to get every thing you need, then go to BB or WF as Mandela sells out of things fast and they may not have every thing on your list on the day that you in there. They use local farmers and unlike BB and WF they use farmers of color.

Pros: Good value, Co-Op, Friendly Staff
Cons: None
