My People's Market

My People’s Market is designed and supported by

Prosper Portland and Travel Portland

Launched in November 2017, this event brought the diverse and vibrant communities of Portland together to celebrate entrepreneurs, makers, artist, culinary wizards, and beverage crafters. 

The market grew from the desire to create pathways for entrepreneurs of color to connect with the travel industry and new market opportunities.
