We Support BIPOC Women Makers + Small Business Owners!
Over our eight years in business, we have been lucky to call Oakland our home, and have built a thriving community that is inclusive, diverse, and kind. It is important to us, as Japanese-American women and small business owners, that we fight for a future that empowers other BIPOC women to lead in their communities and support their creativity. We continue to vote with our dollar, stand behind other small businesses + entrepreneurs, and keep Umami Mart as a loving space for people of all backgrounds and beliefs.

Umami Mart sprouted into this world as an international food + drink blog in 2007. Over the years, it has grown into a Japanese kitchen and barware importing business, based in Oakland, CA. Functional design, quality, and service are all a part of the Umami Mart philosophy, reflected in every facet of the business.
The Oakland shop, opened in 2012, is a curation of bar tools and glassware from Japan, as well as a bottle shop dedicated to sake, shochu, Japanese whisky, and beer. In 2019 we opened a cozy bar in the back of our retail shop – a hub for many events, community gatherings, and beloved regulars.
Since the outbreak of Covid, we have closed our Oakland shop temporarily, but are open for online orders and curbside pick up. We miss you all and can't wait to reopen our shop and see you in real life! If you have any questions, please drop us a line!
