If you have yet to spend time at Oakland's Jack London Square, this weekend would be an outstanding time to visit.  Traditionally, on Sundays, you will always find the Jack London Farmer's Market that features fun, music, and food of every description--fruits, vegetables and greens, nuts, baked bread and pastries, and a wide sampling of food to eat.  But that is just a start this weekend.

The artists of the East Bay Open Studios at Jack London Square are inviting you to come and see the truly amazing and varied art that they are offering for sale. Paintings, sculptures, jewelry, furniture, glasswork and photographic art will be available for purchase.  If you have just bought a home, or have a special place in your present home for a piece of art in any form, this would be the place to come. 

The event is being held at the Jack London Market Building at 55 Harrison Street, and admission is free. On Friday June 6th, the will be a special sneak preview from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m., and on Saturday June 7th, and Sunday, June 8th, the hours are 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.. Set aside some time for the event, and perhaps plan to enjoy a midday meal at one of the Square's restaurants.  This whole revitalized area on the water at the base of Broadway is without a doubt one of Oakland's best attractions.
