the journey.

Founded for the need to create accessible and affordable space for others, creative + small brand 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 rooted + emerging brands to have a physical selling space to offer New Goods and Found Vintage. Focused on connecting people + creating community, HEAD WEST will soon offer retreats + expanded resources for brand learnings, growth, connection + sharing.


THE Calendar

when + where.

HEAD WEST began in 2017 in the East Bay of San Francisco — where it continues to gather and grow on a monthly basis. In December 2018, the marketplace debuted in Old Oakland and has since added 3 new locations to its family of venues for 2019; the iconic Hangar 1 Distillery on the Alameda Island Naval Base, Fourth Street Shops in Berkeley + The Barlow in Sebastopol.

All venues are kid+pet friendly, with exception of HEAD WEST Holiday Indoors at the Hangar 1 Distillery in Alameda, as this becomes a 21+ adult experience due to the open alcohol fumes within the distillery.
