African Caribbean Food Market, fondly known as Man Must Wak has been a Bay area favorite since 1998. Founded by the late Charles Amamgbo, Man Must Wak has grown into the Bay Area’s premier destination for authentic African and Caribbean produce and spices. Much more than just an African Caribbean Food Market, Man Must Wak has become more like the heart of the community to many of its loyal customers. Conveniently located at 547 8th Street, on the corner of 8th and Clay streets in downtown Oakland, African Caribbean Food Market is your home away from home.
“Man Must Wak” – Nigerian Slang/Pidgin English meaning Man Must Eat To Survive.
