Making ethical, sustainable, local goods accessible in Oakland since 2013.
Everything we carry is made in the USA, mostly in the Bay Area, by artists and indie brands. We started with the Oakland-made brand Field Day Apparel, and still carry the full line. We also offer a fully stocked jewelry, apothecary, skin care, cards, home goods and gifts to delight everyone. We are located in the heart of Downtown Oakland, walking distance from the 19th St BART Station and Lake Merritt.
Our newest members of the Field Day & Friends team as of September 2021: Jaspin (left) and Raissa (right)
Jaspin (they/them) is a studying herbalist and is helping out with our Instagram posts, as well as at the shop a few days a week.
Raissa (she/they) is a local Oakland fashion designer and is taking over as Store Manager and working with the wonderful makers and brands we carry.
Please say hello and give these two a warm welcome next time you see them in the store. 💛
- People over Profit - the health of our community, our customers, our makers and our employees guides our decision making and we recognize that profits are not an accurate metric of a thriving community or business; our goal is to connect people through the products they use and make, not to get rich
- Diversity - we are better together and best when all people are able to show up fully; we recognize the role of historic and systemic racism, sexism and discrimination in our culture and set tangible goals to seek equitability and justice in our business practices
- Access - we believe all people deserve to have the option to buy beautiful, sustainable, healthy products and recognize the economic disparity that often creates a barrier for many in our community; we seek to create paths for everyone in our community to enjoy the goods we carry
- Making - we believe in the inherent value of art in all forms and exist to support a thriving community that uses their creativity to make amazing products for each other; we believe supporting ethical practices and local production is better for Mother Nature, results in better products and allows us each to engage with our creativity
