MOCHA @ Akoma Market


Akoma Outdoor Market (a program of the Black Cultural Zone) is a farmers market in deep East Oakland that features local Black and brown-owned farm stands, food vendors, family roller skating, community organizations and other small businesses. The Akoma Market is run and led by a coalition of Black residents, leaders, and organizers with mission to innovate and incubate art, culture, economic development for Black folks in East Oakland.

Created through a partnership between the Black Cultural Zone, a nonprofit promoting Black cultural traditions, arts and local businesses in East Oakland, and the Oakland African American Chamber of Commerce, Akoma launched September of 2020, running on the first Sunday of every month. Since February, Akoma Outdoor Market became a 

bi-monthly (weather permitting) event, now taking place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., first and third Sundays. The Museum of Children's Art is a proud BCZ community partner that hosts an Art Pop Up Program with free hands-on art making and book giveaways at the Akoma Market. Come join us!


(In May through October 2021, Akoma Market will transition to a weekly Sunday event before returning to its first Sunday schedule in November and December 2021.)
