Rockridge is truly one of those hidden gems that provides an exploring visitor the ability to really experience what it’s like to live like an East Bay local. I would highly recommend getting out your walking shoes, hopping on BART, and bringing that reusable bag for a trip along College Avenue to some of my favorite places like Market Hall Foods and Maison d’Etre, a great home gift shop.
