I have been looking for really fresh apples in Oakland and Berkeley lately w/out success. Berkeley Bowl seems to have fallen down on the job. They used to have heirloom apples but haven't seen them this year. Rockridge Produce (in Mkt. Hall) has some apples, but they don't seem like anything much.
Where are the Arkansas Blacks???? The best apples on earth?
I can't get to the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Mkt. or to any of the weekday afternoon farmers' markets in Berkeley.
Haven't seen any good apples on 9th Street in Oakland Friday Farmers' Mkt. How about the Saturday Grand Lake F.Mkt?
What about the Sunday Jack London Mkt? There used to be a guy with lots of apples there, but I haven't gone for more than a year.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
