It was a gorgeous sunny day in the East Bay and it was definitely churro o'clock. My sister-in-law and her family lives in Alameda and after a picnic in the park in the Oakland Hills, we stopped at Fruitvale Public Market (map) in Oakland on the way home for some sweet, sweet churros.

What is Fruitvale Public Market?

Fruitvale Public Market is actually a small business incubator opened in 2008. The market is home to 11 vendors with a Latin American focus and featuring both food and arts and crafts.

SIDEWALK SAFARI SPOTLIGHT: Pro-tip: take the ferry to Alameda instead of riding BART and enjoy some amazing views of the San Francisco skyline and SF Bay Bridge on the way.

They can be eaten plain or filled with a variety of delicious flavors.

We opted for chocolate and caramel.  We ate our churros warm and fresh out of the fryer.

If you have a sweet tooth, it's definitely worth a detour to the Fruitvale Public Market on a sunny afternoon for a churro-licious treat.

SIDEWALK SAFARI SPOTLIGHT: Looking for other ideas for things to do in the San Francisco Bay Area? Here are some of my top suggestions:
Why not see multiple areas around San Francisco on a Bay Area birdwatching hike at various places in the South and East Bay? Another great option (if you are less outdoorsy) is to take yourself on a self-guided tour of the best margaritas in the San Francisco Bay Area.
