Join us at My People’s Market 4, Market of the Future - a vibrant space that introduces a more complete market experience of community, culture, and business.
This summer’s market will be at the Post Office on Broadway, in the heart of the Broadway Corridor development project. We hope My People’s Market will showcase the potential to strengthen social ties and test ideas for a locally powered, welcoming public space before shovels hit the dirt.
SHOP: 130 plus diverse and vibrant entrepreneurs, makers, artists, culinary wizards and beverage crafters. This year we also have a dedicated youth market featuring 6 young entrepreneurs.
PLAY: Indulge your sense of curiosity and wonder through activities like double dutch, break dancing, kids face painting, a crafting workshop provided by DIY Bar and much more.
CONNECT: Embrace and build community through stories and art of the past, present, and future with exhibits from Oregon Black Pioneers, Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center, and Portland Chinatown Museum + Albina Queens. See what's being envisioned for the site in the next 10-20 years through the Broadway Corridor project.
HEAL: Enjoy a moment for yourself and allow us to help you heal with the help of City Repair and their mural painting art, chocolate samples from Milieu PDX and more relaxing activities.
