I think I know the place. I think it is called Pilipinas Bakery on Saviers Road. It really isn't a bakery (it's more of a restaurant and a market). We (my Filipino buddies and I from Point Mugu) used to go there for lunch. Weird food. Weird purple squids and oddly prepared seafood.

There are tons of Filipinos in Oxnard because many of them are from the Navy at Point Mugu and Port Hueneme.

Does anyone know of any Taiwanese or Chinese markets in the Ventura area? I really do need to visit Oxnard more often, but I'm loath to waste the time and gas when I can walk to most of what I need.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll check out Pilipinas Bakery. Is it really on the corner of Saviers and Yucca?

Does anyone have any good suggestions of where else I should visit when I go to Oxnard? Looking specifically for cheap fresh veggies and a good inexpensive butcher. Feel free to mention thrift stores and anything else that you think interesting.

There's a nice little hole-in-the wall Thai-Chinese restaurant at the corner of Vineyard and Oxnard Blvd, behind the Mexican Grill, in the same wing as the Kampai sushi place.

There is another Asian market somewhere in town, but for the life of me, I can't bring the location far enough forward in my mind to tell you. Let me think about it.

There are several thrift stores on Ox Bl starting at around 2nd Street. La Gloria, downtown next to Amtrak, is a good market for Hispanic food, and it's right right around the corner from a discount clothing store. Thomas Cafe on A Street is well worth a visit. If you explore that area on a Thursday, you can hit the downtown farmers market at Plaza Park. Otherwise, the Channel Islands Harbor hosts a farmers market on Sundays.

There's an Asian food store near the Buddy Burger in Oxnard.

Thanks, doily, where's Buddy Burger?

Cre8, I went to the fisherman's market at the Ventura Harbor last Sunday, but it wasn't going on. Was it due to the rain or do they not have it in the winter?

I'll check out the CI farmer's market. Are the prices better than the midtown Saturday farmer's market?

Not sure about Ventura Harbor farmers market, my guess it was canceled because of rain. I've seen the CI Harbor farmers market operate in rain, but last Sunday's storm was forecasted to be a big one.

Buddy Burger is downtown on Oxnard Blvd.

Also forgot to mention in my earlier post about the Salvation Army thrift store just outside of downtown at 5th and Ventura Road. Between it and downtown it's kinda' nice to walk the Henry T. Oxnard Historic District. Though over now, F & G Streets do a very nice job decorating for Christmas. Also, on the subject of downtown Oxnard, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Heritage Square.

Pretty sure you're talking about the Fuwa Market.

I am moving from virginia to the Ventura area. Just how bad is the rents there? I will need a 4 bedroom, since there are 4 kids, and they range in age from 5 to 13.

thanks

Houses like that in Ventura are going for $2200-$3000 depending on location and condition. There are actually quite a lot of them in the classifieds right now - people who can't sell them are renting them out instead.
