What is My People’s Market?
My People’s Market is the marketplace re-imagined as a gathering of Portland’s diverse and vibrant entrepreneurs, makers, artists, 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.
