TAKE A PIECE OF OAKLAND HOME WITH YOU

Oakland isn't a city of big-box stores or mega-malls. It's a network of communities rich with old-fashioned neighborhood shopping districts, including antique shops, chic boutiques, and ethnic treasure houses. Ethnic shops abound in Chinatown and the Latin-flavored Fruitvale district, while College Avenue, Piedmont and Grand Avenue are lined with chic boutiques. For more information on Oakland's 35 commercial districts, visit www.shopoakland.com.

Chinatown
More than its name suggests, this area is packed with pan-Asian culture. Visitors to the downtown neighborhood will find dozens of fascinating, eclectic stores that carry fresh, high-quality produce, live seafood, healing herbs, and a plethora of retail goods-everything from chopsticks and stress relievers to fine china and porcelain. You'll find some of these goods at Pacific Renaissance Plaza, which houses two stories of shops. The plaza also boasts a quiet courtyard-the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a cool drink.
