Market Hall Caterers FAQs

Delivery & Setup

Where do you deliver?

Most of our deliveries are to locations within Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco Counties, but we can also deliver outside these areas. Our primary delivery locations include Oakland, Piedmont, Berkeley, El Cerrito, Richmond, Alameda, Lafayette and San Francisco.

When do you deliver?

Delivery is available from 8:30am–4:00pm Monday through Friday, and 8am–3pm on Saturdays. 

What do you deliver?

We deliver every menu item on our website. We can also deliver beverages, flowers and tableware.

How far in advance do I need to place my order for Delivery & Setup?

  • Orders always depend on our availability. When our calendar allows, you must place your order at least 48 hours ahead of time. Earlier is always better, as our Delivery & Setup schedule often closes a week or two weeks in advance, especially around the WInter holidays and the month of May (because of graduations). Please call as soon as possible to book your date; your menu can be finalized later.
  • Orders for the weekend or Mondays must be confirmed by noon on Friday.

What are your minimums and fees for Delivery & Setup?

There is a $350 food minimum for Delivery & Setup. The delivery charge to the cities of Oakland, Piedmont, Berkeley, Albany and Emeryville is $50 for weekdays, $60 for weekends. Delivery fees are higher for cities farther away. 

Do you provide serveware and tableware?

Platters and Menus are delivered on serveware as specified in each category.  We can provide compostable and recyclable disposables, table coverings, beverages and disposable chafing dishes.

How much time does it take to set up a buffet?

We require 15–30 minutes to set up a buffet. It’s best to be fully set up a half an hour before guests arrive (our delivered food is designed to be served at room temperature). Please take this into consideration when planning your event.

  • 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 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.
