Third Oaktown Spice Shop Location in Castro Valley Scheduled for 2020

Third Oaktown Spice Shop Location in Castro Valley Scheduled for 2020

As many of you know (and some of you might not), we are planning a third retail shop location in the soon-to-be-built Castro Valley Marketplace!

Although there have been some delays, construction is well underway on the Marketplace as a whole, and we plan to begin construction on our little shop in the next couple of months. Our new estimated opening date is early 2020. 

We’re putting the last touches on our design for the new space. Next steps include choosing the perfect wood for our signature spice shelves.

We’re also excited that a few new makers and merchants have joined the project, including AKA Coffee.

Castro Valley Marketplace will be an artisanal food hall and community gathering space in downtown Castro Valley. Anchored by the Castro Valley Natural Grocery, the marketplace will also be home to a bread bakery, butchery, sidewalk cafe, craft cocktails, wine shop, commercial kitchen and cooking school, event and collaboration space, and more.

We plan to provide the same variety of spices, herbs, teas and gift boxes in the new Castro Valley location, with the same aesthetic and excellent customer service as our existing shops in Oakland and Albany.

The marketplace will be located at 3295 Castro Valley Boulevard, the long-vacant former location of Daughtrey’s department store. The complex is currently under construction, and we are in the design phase of planning our shop.

The Castro Valley spice shop will be our third location in the Bay Area. We opened our Oakland shop in 2011 and our Albany shop in 2017. We are grateful to our dedicated spice associates, who have helped improve our business and enabled us to grow. And we’re thankful for all our wonderful customers for your support over the years.

We have not begun the hiring process for the Castro Valley location, but if you or someone you know is interested, please email us at info@oaktownspiceshop.com.

We will keep you posted on this new development via our newsletter, Instagram and website!
