Oakland is getting a lot of attention these days thanks to the rise of the city’s burgeoning fast-casual chain, Joe’s, which is opening two grocery stores, the Oakland Wine Garden and the Oakland Food Bank.
But if you’re wondering where all that food is, you’ll have to visit the stores themselves.
Oakland City Councilman Dan Kalb, a Democrat, has called for the city to shut down all of its stores for safety reasons, though he’s not the only city council member to do so.
Here’s a look at the three Joe’s locations.
Oakland Wine Garden Joe’s store is located at the corner of Fourth and Market Streets in Oakland.

The food banks are part of the Food Bank Network, which connects people with food in need.
The Oakland Foodbank also offers a free breakfast to homeless people each week.
Oakland Health Department The Oakland Health department is located on Broadway and Market streets in Oakland, and it provides emergency and wellness services to those in need in Oakland and beyond.
The department provides dental and vision care, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and other health care services to the city and its residents.
City Council members Kalb and John Avalos, who represent the neighborhood, both have spoken out against closing the two locations.
Kalb tweeted that the City Council is “furious” over Joe’s move to Oakland.
“I have a great relationship with the people of Oakland,” Kalb said in a statement.
“I have known Joe’s for years and I want to continue working with him to ensure that we are doing everything we can to help people in need.”

It’s expected to cost $500,000 to build and open, which would be funded through a new bond that will be passed by voters next year.
(Published Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2019)City Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan said that her office has spoken with several residents who live in the neighborhood about the potential loss of the stores.
The councilwoman said that she’s also reached out to other council members, and she hopes that they will agree to take up the issue.
“If the city council doesn’t agree to that, I’m not going to put my office on the line and say we need to go after this,” Kaplan said.
Kaplan said she believes the community is behind Joe’s decision.
“It’s been a long time coming, but I think it’s time that we did,” Kaplan added.
“This is the right thing to do for the community, for Oakland, for the neighborhood.
We need more of these stores in our city.”
The Oakland Food bank opened in 2013, but only opened one store, a grocery store at 14th and Market.
The city of Oakland plans to spend $500.3 million to build a new BART Station on the West Oakland side of the BART tracks.
The city plans to install a new station and new escalators on the tracks.
The new stations will also include new restrooms and an expanded food court.
The expansion will also provide more seating for people using wheelchairs.
The BART station also will feature more seating to accommodate riders with disabilities, according to a news release from the city.
“The BART expansion is part of our long-term transportation plan to create more accessible and reliable public transit, with an emphasis on expanding ridership by connecting the stations to a new transit hub in Downtown Oakland,” said San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee.
“We’re excited that BART is now moving closer to becoming a permanent fixture in the heart of our city and helping to improve the lives of our residents.”
Joe’s and Oakland WineGarden are expected to open in late 2019.
