Jack London Square has gone through quite a bit of changes through the years, but it still has its charm and allure. The marina, the many restaurants, hotels, bars, the train, the ferry. They have a Farmer's Market on Sundays which is very nice. Plank,...More

Jack London Square, with its many bars, restaurants, shops, theaters, and music spots is one of Oakland's iconic, must-see locations. Be careful of the trains that run right through the center!

Sunday was the day we visited and the Farmers Market made our visit really enjoyable. This is a well-established long-running market with probably 35-45 vendors, selling jewelry, bags, scarves, soaps, wood carvings, photography, garden art, honey, candies and foods. Musicians perform and you can eat...More

We visited the square on a beautiful afternoon and strolled around. The shops and restaurants are very spread out, so it seems a bit empty.
