Berkeley Bowl is an independent grocery store in Berkeley, California.[1][2][3][4][5] owned by Glenn and Diane Yasuda.[2] They sell organic and natural products at relatively low prices and maintain an extensive produce section. The business name stems from their first store location, in a former bowling alley.[6] In 2008, the Los Angeles Times wrote that it was "this strident city's most popular grocery store."[4]

It was started as a small local grocery store in 1977 and now has two locations in Berkeley.[7]
