About:

Swans Market was a major shopping destination for all of the East Bay for over 60 years and remains an important downtown landmark. The existing structure, built in several stages from 1917 - 1940, encompasses an entire city block in the Old Oakland neighborhood. The glazed brick and terra cotta contribute to its landmark listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Portions of the existing trusses are exposed to bring sunlight into the interior of the block and to create public and private outdoor spaces that link the diverse uses into a vibrant, unique urban community. The complex provides a vibrant home to the Museum of Children’s Art, several restaurants, nonprofit organizations, offices, and the historic Housewives Market which dates back to the early 20th century.
