About this Event

Join us in celebrating 6 months of being open! We will host a panel of the four Ashland Market & Cafe community businesses, taste their delicious foods, drink, and cultivate community.

All proceeds will benefit Mandela Partners and the Ashland Market & Cafe community food business incubator.

Meet the businesses:

Thank Que Grill - Rene Lontoc wants to introduce the flavors of the Philippines to the greater Bay Area and world through his Filipino BBQ flavors and recipes passed down through generations of family members. In his kiosk, a framed picture of his grandmother hangs with the words "Forever, for always, and no matter what! Her lumpias are #1!". Rene puts his heart and his heritage into each menu item and loves creating unique menu items from his favorite family recipes.

AndreaMarie Custom Cake & Treats - Andrea Scott began baking as an escape from reality. She calls it her "happy place". She loves creating new recipes and making art on a cake. Andrea decided to pursue her passion through attending Laney College's Culinary Arts Program and starting her own business in 2009. She lives in Ashland Place, the building where the Ashland Market & Cafe is located, and is excited because this community food hall space connects her business with her family and her community.

I AM Cafe - LaShawn Raybon's friends call her the "Cafeteria Lady". She started her business Cakes by the Pound Bay Area in 2015 and is famous throughout the Bay Area and United States for her pound cake recipes and gracious laugh and smile. LaShawn grew her cake business to a catering business and had the opportunity to open the I AM Cafe concept in March 2019. Through LaShawn's cafe, she re-introduces comfort foods from simpler times such as eggs on grits and strives to create a welcoming cafe and space for families and adults to relax.

Jacquelynn's Heart & Soul - Jacquelynn Chancellor puts her heart and soul into her healthy yet comforting menu items and recipes. Her soul food recipes are a combination of old family recipes learned from her grandma as well as her culinary experiences. Jacquelynn has been working professionally in kitchens since she was 16 years old where she began selling and serving food at local church events and later studied Culinary Arts at the Art Institute in SF. She grew up in Oakland and proudly lives a block away from the Ashland Market & Cafe.

Drinks provided by St. George Spirits, Drake's Brewing Company, and more! More info coming soon.
