HEAD WEST: a new marketplace

the journey.

Born out of the desire to create accessible and affordable space for others, creative + small business entrepreneur 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 workshops, a speaker series and expanded resources for new and existing brands to learn, grow, connect + share. 


Calendar: Dates + Locations

when + where.

Head West began in 2017 in Oakland, California — where it continues to gather and grow on a monthly basis. Beginning December 2018, the marketplace, hosted by desert-inspired lifestyle brand West Perro debuted in Old Oakland and is expanding to the iconic Hangar 1 Distillery on the historic Alameda Island Naval Base, in addition to a soon-to-be announced location in Berkeley. Have a space in mind for a pop-up marketplace, workshop or speaker event? Reach out to Jimmy, here.
