My People’s Market is designed and supported by Travel Portland and Prosper Portland. The market grew from the desire to create pathways for entrepreneurs of color to connect with the travel industry and new market opportunities. After several smaller events the need became clear for a larger market that celebrates businesses, community, and culture. My People’s Market is the marketplace re-imagined a gathering of Portland’s diverse and vibrant entrepreneurs, makers, artists, culinary wizards, and beverage crafters.
