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 in September of 2020, running a bi-monthly (weather permitting) event, now taking place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 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!
