Mark Curry invites you shop Oakland Grown.

Oakland Grown was proud to lead the Plaid Friday Weekend holiday kickoff on Nov. 24-26, 2017. With your participation, we shifted a lot of dollars to Oakland's independent businesses during the busiest shopping weekend of the year! Thank you, Oakland! #PFWOak
