HEAD WEST: a new marketplace

the journey.

Born out of the need to create accessible and affordable space for others, creative + small business owner Jimmy Brower curates a marketplace experience that brings together the spirit of the modern maker with the ideals of the traveling vagabond to the East Bay of San Francisco. HEAD WEST provides a platform for new and emerging brands to have a physical selling space to showcase their designs, hand-made goods and unique talents. Focused on building connections + creating community, HEAD WEST, in addition to the marketplace, will soon offer retreats + expanded resources for new and existing brands to learn, grow, connect + share.

THE Calendar

when + where.

HEAD WEST began in 2017 in Oakland, California — where it continues to gather and grow on a monthly basis. Beginning in December 2018, the marketplace, hosted by desert-inspired lifestyle brand West Perro debuted in Old Oakland and has since expanded to the iconic Hangar 1 Distillery on the Alameda Island Naval Base + Fourth Street Shops in Berkeley.

Have a space in mind for a marketplace, workshop or speaker event? Reach out to Jimmy, here.
