In a segment hosted by Great Big Story, we learned that the Oakland Zookeepers make use of Jack London's Wholesale Produce Market. In the video, we follow Stacy Kyles the Commissary Supervisor for the Oakland Zoo, as she shops for her very picky eaters. Did you know the Zoo prepares nearly 1000 separate diets every day?
The Wholesale Produce Market in Jack London turns 100 this year. Many Oaklanders may not even be aware of its existence as it only operates at night and the wee hours of the morning.
We're proud to see this historic market thrive and excited to see its value to the community.
