Missed My People’s Market? You Can Still Support Local, Minority-Owned Businesses
Portland, Oregon is a great place to live if you like supporting local, small businesses. Thanks to events like My People’s Market, our city’s becoming an even better place to live for supporting and providing opportunities to local entrepreneurs of color.
My People’s Market, which took place earlier in November, featured nearly 100 local multicultural vendors, as well as live music and great food (because what would a Portland gathering be without the food?) It wasn’t your typical market, more of a festival, a party, and a vibrant gathering put together by Travel Portland, Partners in Diversity, Prosper Portland, and the Mercatus Collective. The event celebrated local businesses and provided networking opportunities for business owners of color.
We here at Grady Britton were honored to be a sponsor of My People’s Market, and we’re looking forward to supporting the future connection opportunities that Mercatus and Proper Portland’s Inclusive Business Resource Network already have planned.
If you missed My People’s Market, you didn’t miss your chance to support local, minority-owned businesses. You can check out some of the highlights below—and click on any of the links we’ve included here to learn more about each brand.
