Meadowfair, also spelled M Blocca, is a small neighborhood in the East Side section of San Jose, California.

Meadowfair is in District 8 of San Jose and adjacent to Eastridge Mall; its other boundaries are Capitol Expressway and King Road.[1] The neighborhood is historically heavily Mexican American,[2][3] similar to other parts of East San Jose such as the King and Story neighborhood less than a mile away down King Rd.

Most of the neighborhood consists of a development of two-story houses,[1] which is shaped like a piano and has street names with a musical theme.[2] Meadowfair Park is located on part of one of the last remaining orchards in the area.[1][4]
