When people ask, “What’s good around here?” it used to be a bit hard to answer. There were a good number of decent places, but we come from San Francisco where there are lots of good eats open all hours of the day and night. Slowly but surely, there are some eateries arriving on the scene. We are excited for the new Castro Valley Marketplace that will be opening this summer. We were bummed that we missed out on the Wall Breaking event in November, but super surprised that we were able to get an exclusive sneak peek at the Marketplace premises during construction.
It never hurts to enter a contest. All I had to do was share about the Marketplace and I won a limited edition of the Marketplace fleece jacket and a peek into the making of the Marketplace. Thanks to Craig who gave us the tour and a tip. –> Follow along on social media for your own chance to get in on the action! 😉
