Portland Mercado

Portland's first Latino Public Market

Portland Mercado is a community of more than 16 permanent businesses in our public market and plaza and many more in our incubator kitchen – bringing together diverse cultures through food, art and entertainment.

Several years of grass roots efforts, a strong partnership with the Portland Development Commission and community partners made this project a reality. Previously an abandoned car dealership the Mercado now boasts 8 food carts, a grocer with fresh produce, a beer and wine shop, a meat and chorizo vendor, a coffee shop, a party shop and a fruit and juice store along with offices for small business and a full time affordable commissary kitchen.
