Market Hall Caterers FAQs

Green Guide

Is your serveware, tableware and packaging sustainable?

We are genuinely concerned about our planet's welfare and are a little obsessed with finding new ways to reduce the amount of disposable items our food and service requires. All of our packaging, serveware  (trays, bowls and lids), and tableware is compostable (plates, bowls, utensils, containers, cups and napkins). It is made from BPI certified renewable and reclaimed (from bio-waste) sugarcane. Our black plastic serving utensils are recyclable.

How do I recycle and compost your serveware, tableware and packaging?

We're so glad you asked. Our ongoing, shared efforts to respect the environment and reduce waste will make a difference. Here's a guide for properly disposing of our serveware, tableware and packaging. This guide is applicable to the City of Oakland only.  If you live outside of Oakland, please consult your local municipality's guidelines. Do be sure to rinse all containers before recycling them. And thanks again for caring!

  • Just wanted to thank you for your help in ordering and delivering lunch for our team meeting. The food was great, the delivery was on time and the gentleman who delivered to us did a great job setting everything up. People enjoyed the food and one of our team members said she would remember Market Hall for future catering needs.

  • Everything was fantastic. I so appreciate working with you and having someone I can trust. It's a rare thing, especially in our industry. My company is a big organization with lots of events, Market Hall should know that you single handedly saved us as a client and made them my go-to caterer.

  • I’m really pleased to let you know that the catering from Market Hall was greatly enjoyed by all, and was generously portioned. It was perfect, and I appreciate your assurance yesterday that the quantities were fine. Thank you also for graciously helping me carry the platters to my car.

  • You guys totally showcased our beautiful California living! Thanks so much for being so incredibly easy and so 100% reliable. Its a pleasure to work with you! Looking forward to another season of feeding the masses with you.


  • I wish I could have met you in person to thank you so much for all that you have done! Everybody LOVED the food (all of it!!! It disappeared, and was the perfect amount). I got a lot of compliments, including from a friend of mine who is super particular and critical about EVERYTHING. It honestly couldn't have been better and my Dad said you were so nice and explained everything to him. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You made my wedding day a huge hit.
