Pop-Up Market at Taiwan Bento

When: Fri., Dec. 11, 12-7 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 13, 12-7 p.m. 2015

Holiday shopping can be a dreary, thankless task — a lose-lose choice between getting pummeled by crowds at the shopping mall or contributing to the death of the local economy if you buy everything online. Pop-up markets like the one at Taiwan Bento (412 22nd St., Oakland) offer an attractive alternative. Choose from a carefully curated selection of one-of-a-kind gifts while supporting local jewelry makers and succulent-arrangers. In the meantime, since this particular pop-up is being held at one of Oakland’s most appealing Taiwanese restaurants, you’ll have no shortage of food to keep you going: Beer, boba tea drinks, and snacks such as Taiwan Bento’s signature Taiwanese-style popcorn chicken will be sold at happy hour prices all day long, and another local food artisan — We the Minis — will be on hand hawking cupcakes. — Luke Tsai
