Where is the Fairway of Oakland?

I pedaled over to Food Mill yesterday...love the self-serve bulk bins and agave-sweetened gummibears! But still looking for "Fairway" olive oil and discount/bulk canned goods.

Thanks tm...I'm near Lake Merritt so Food Mill and Oasis are both close enough to pedal over to...I'll check them out.

Hi All: Just moved to Oakland from NYC, and I'm hoping to find the equivalent of a discount-gourmet foods outlet a la Fairway in NY.

While I love Trader Joe's produce, I'm looking for things like olive oil, hearts of palm, rice, dry goods, cheeses, olives, prime meat, etc. at less than Whole Paycheck prices. I miss my Roland pre-cut hearts of palm for $1.79/can. :(

I've tried local chains like Pak'n'Save and Lucky, but they are just run-of-the-mill supermarts. Grocery Outlet looks promising for ethnic food but seems hit-or-miss. There are some small international-food bodegas that are interesting and exotic, but not what I'm looking for.

Hopefully there are some transplant NY'ers here that understand what I'm talking about!
