For nearly 30 years, Market Hall Foods (formerly The Pasta Shop) has served as the East Bay's source for the best specialty groceries, the tastiest prepared foods, the finest cheeses and gifts of food.
Our buyers, chefs and cheesemongers are always working to ensure we're sharing nothing but the best with our customers. If we have to travel to the groves of an olive oil producer, the fields of a chicken farmer or the pastures of a cheesemaker, we will do it to be sure you know where our products come from.
We Changed Our Name - The Pasta Shop is now Market Hall Foods - August 2016
Originally named The Pasta Shop after the fresh pasta and ravioli the store made daily (and still does), in 2016 the nationally recognized specialty food store changed it's name to Market Hall Foods. Now, Market Hall Foods encompasses two retails stores in Oakland and Berkeley, as well as the online shop, markethallfoods.com.
The first Market Hall Foods opened in 1987 inside the European-style market place, Rockridge Market Hall. Then in 1996, a new location was opened at the 4th Street Shopping District in Berkeley. Then, an e-commerce site, selling a curated selection of ingredients from the shops, was launched in 2005.
The brand name The Pasta Shop still exists and the fresh pasta, ravioli and sauces the company makes are sold at our retail and online shops, as well as at the San Francisco Farmers Market, GoodEggs.com, many markets throughout the Bay Area, and is also served at over 200 restaurants.
All these businesses are still owned and operated by the Wilson family, siblings Sara, Tony and Peter. In 2017, Market Hall Foods & The Pasta Shop will celebrate 30 years.
