COME EAT WITH US @ OAKLAND BLOOM’S NIGHT MARKET! NEXT DATE TBA!

Come experience a communal hawker-style dining experience with friendly folks and delicious small plates! Each event offers a variety of cultural street-style comfort food cooked by aspiring chef entrepreneurs trained through Oakland Bloom’s Open Test Kitchen program. The Open Test Kitchen Program is a community food court + hands-on food incubator program that provides refugee, immigrant, and low-income chef entrepreneurs with a creative space to test new and traditional cultural recipes and share their refined dishes with eaters in a low-risk commercial setting via Oakland Bloom’s night market pop-up.

Featuring home-style small plates that are difficult to find in restaurants, suggested donations are:

ONLINE (40 spots available per seating hour): Suggested minimum donation $18.75 per person for 3 plate tickets + 1 drink ticket.

AT THE DOOR/IN-PERSON (limited spots available per seating hour): Suggested minimum donation $20 (cash only) for 3 plate tickets + 1 drink ticket.

PLEASE SELECT AN HOURLY SEATING TIME WHEN RESERVING TICKETS.
1) 5:30-6:30pm
