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.

This unique sponsorship opportunity provides your organization an opportunity to show your commitment and contribute to a more equitable and inclusive Portland and to be a part of an exciting new initiative that is changing the entrepreneurial landscape here for people of color.


We expect between 3,000-4,000 attendees. The first My People's Market drew 400 people per hour!


  • Saturday, June 30 (full day event) in the Rose Quarter Commons
