Pop-ups are here!  The Berkeley Bowl Cafe at Berkeley Bowl West is up to some yumminess! 

We're inviting pop-up vendors from all over the Bay Area into our Berkeley Bowl West Cafe to take over our kitchen one (or two) days at a time!

Everything from BBQ to Pizza to Indonesian Street Food and more - we've got some amazing partners on deck ready to feed you the most amazing dishes!  We're officially kicking things off in January, but if you sign up for the email (below) you'll be the first to know who's coming (like our sweet friends who will be here in December!)

We're getting a glow-up!  The Meat Department at Berkeley Bowl Main on Oregon Street is getting an upgrade!


In the meantime, we're going to do everything we can to ensure our customers can get what they need as always - we'll be offering more variety and options in our pre-packed meats and for anyone seeking a specific cut/weight/style of item from our regular selection, we invite you to place a custom order!  

Orders placed by 7 PM will be prepared and available for pick up at the Berkeley Bowl Main seafood counter when we open the next day. 


Thanks in advance for your patience during our renovations! 

Please note - operations at Berkeley Bowl West will not be impacted at this time. 

We want to make sure our customers stay informed on any product recalls. Updates are posted as available/released.

Berkeley Municipal Code 11.62 - Plastic Bag Ban

Operation Zero Waste

New Year, New Rules

As of January 2023, the City Of Berkeley has implemented a ban on pre-checkout produce bags - the plastic film bags you find in our produce and bulk areas will be phased out of use. Further, the State Of California has also passed a new ordinance that will take effect in January of 2025 where plastic film bags will be banned throughout the state. The local initiative is part of the City Of Berkeley's goal to become a zero-waste city, and we here at Berkeley Bowl fully support the efforts!

COVID-19 updates

2/15/2022 COVID-19 UPDATE 

Beginning February 16th, Alameda County and The City of Berkeley will be lifting the requirement that vaccinated people wear masks in most public indoor spaces


Berkeley Public Health has advised that continuing to wear a face-covering indoors is still strongly recommended, particularly in crowded places. Businesses will set policies on their own premises.


Here at Berkeley Bowl, we are committed to making decisions and prioritizing the safety of our staff and customers to the best of our abilities.  Those familiar with our stores know that at peak times, it can become quite crowded. 


At Berkeley Bowl, we recommend the continued use of face masks, but they are no longer a requirement to shop in our stores.


We will continue to monitor advice and safety precautions as they are released from National, State, County, and Local authorities, and will adjust policies accordingly to maintain compliance while ensuring we keep the safety of our customers and staff first priority.

We thank you in advance for your support.

  • Our bulk section is fully re-opened; customers are able to use clean, reusable produce bags and bulk containers.  Please make sure to have your containers weighed in the bulk department before coming to the registers, we will not be able to adjust for container weight at checkout.

  • Hot soups are back and available at both stores!

  • Kombucha is back with up to 8 flavors on tap at each store!

  • Social distancing guidelines are no longer required.

  • Clean/sanitized reusable bags will be welcomed back inside the store for grocery, produce, and bulk items.

Reuseable Bags

Green As We Can Be

We care about the environment, and we know you do too!

With the implementation of the new plastic film bag ban, we continue to encourage our customers to use their own containers when shopping at Berkeley Bowl.  

Reuseable produce bags are available for sale in-store, and we highly recommend the use of your own clean and dry containers for your bulk foods shopping (our bulk department staff on-site will tare your containers for you!)
