Shopping local is a no-brainer!
Many CAMEO members offer directories of local shops and businesses in their areas for us to visit and support. We will be updating this list throughout the holiday season, and if you have a guide or event to share, please send it to Daniela.
- Main Street Launch – Want to get your loved ones something truly unique for the holidays? There’s no better place to find one-of-a-kind gifts than at a local small business. Oakland is a city of makers, creatives, foodies, and entrepreneurs. Invest in this vibrant community by supporting the independently owned businesses listed on Shop Oakland Now.
- El Pajaro CDC – Their Kitchen Gift Basket is now available for ordering! It offers a selection of handcrafted artisan food products created in their Commercial Kitchen Incubator.
- Pacific Community Ventures – Check out their Holiday Gift Guide with some great gift ideas and where to buy them. They also recommend Oakland Grown‘s local buying guide, as well as the American Independent Business Alliance directory.
- La Cocina – The La Cocina Gift Box includes products made by low-income and immigrant women entrepreneurs in and graduates of their kitchen incubator. You can also check out their Holiday Market on December 9 that will feature delightful products from a select group of La Cocina entrepreneurs and San Francisco Cooking School graduates.
