Small and self-contained, the Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, mega-malls, and big box stores ruled the retail scene. Stretching along a few small compact blocks along Mountain Boulevard, residents can find everything they need from a postage stamp and a spare key, to dry cleaning and groceries, all within a short walk. Shoppers will find small family-run stores that have been mainstays of the town for generations. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Montclair Malt Shop, and Crogan’s. Gourmet specialty items are available at A.G. Ferrari, Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmers market on Sundays provides fresh local produce and bakery goods. Montclair is home to a fine arts festival in the spring and a jazz festival in the fall that enlivens the street scene. 
 
For families looking at homes for sale in Montclair, neighborhood schools are among the best in Oakland. These include Montclair Elementary, Thornhill Elementary, Joaquin Miller Elementary, and Montera Middle School.
