What is Oakland Grown?

Inspired by similar efforts around the country, Oakland Grown is a group of local business owners, artists, and engaged citizens committed to strengthening Oakland’s local economy, social well being, and unique sense of place. Our vision includes the creation of a permanent local network that:

  • Supports the growth and development of locally owned and independently operated businesses and local artists in Oakland
  • Encourages local purchasing by residents, businesses, and artists
  • Creates opportunities for business owners and artists to network and share best practices
  • Advocates for public policies that strengthen independent local businesses and artists, and helps level the economic playing field
