Lake Merritt Fruitluck

There will be two fruitlucks at Lake Merritt this August!

We will be meeting by the Lake Merritt Amphitheater (it looks like a series of long raised concrete steps on the grass, in front of the lake). This is near the bathrooms and around 12th Street and Lake Merritt Blvd.  See picture below.  The amphitheater is walking distance from both Lake Merritt BART and 12th St BART stations.

Please bring ripe fresh fruit. Organic/exotic fruit is encouraged.  Bringing cardboard boxes for our compost and taking it home would be helpful.  Cameras, frisbees, kites, hoola hoops, balls, guitars, etc would be fun.

For those new to the area, nearby are great places to get fruit such as Oakland Chinatown, Grand Lake Farmers Market (Saturday mornings), Jack London Square Farmers' Market (Sunday mornings), Oakland Wholesale Produce Market (open on weekdays and Saturdays from around midnight to 10 a.m.), Whole Foods Market, and if you are willing to travel via car or bus.. both Berkeley Bowls.  See you at the fruitluck!

      Where juicy fruit gum most likely got its flavor inspiration from. Nearly every other fruitluck there are a couple. ( :
