Midwest beef is featured in their meat department, which is also stocked with kabobs, sausages, and seafood, along with already-marinated chicken breasts for your beach feasts. They have a floral section that draws from the surviving nurseries in the area that was once famed as the pointsettia capital of the world. Their bakery, similarly, draws from local, specialty bakers and offerings a range of specialties from cakes and pies to tarts and mousse. Open from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily, the Seaside Market claims its prices are as good as the chains, and they are, if you add a little more for quality now and then. Their telephone number is 753-5445, and they have a website.
Where do you take your picnic goodies? To nearby Glen Park, a small, ocean-view park that has picnic tables,rest rooms,phone,playround,tennis,basketball and volleyball courts-all you need to keep everyone happy & active, and you can eat without the beach sand! It's at 2149 Orinda Drive. But,if you need to park a car, get to the park early on beautiful summer weekends, for, by noon, all parking spaces around the park will be taken and the nearby, narrow streets full,too.
