Help Howden Market Reopen


Howden Market is closed due to a drunk driver crashing through the front of our store during a busy Saturday evening - THANKFULLY no one was hurt .

Sadly, the damage is significant and we don’t know exactly how long repairs will take. This is quite a blow, especially after the Covid lockdown forced us to close our beloved Spice Monkey Restaurant next door. The hardest part for us is not being able to gather with you and our staff as a community.

That said, we are committed to reopening Howden Market better than before. Get involved with us by subscribing to our email list and checking out our link tree to follow us on social media and to donate to our GoFundMe.

THANK YOU for all the support you’ve shown over the years. Proudly speaking, as a Cambodian-born immigrant and Air Force veteran, being of service to you and all the people of Oakland has been my greatest honor. Stay safe. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
