More than 1200 people and almost 90 vendors flocked to My People’s Market on Thursday, November 9 at The Redd in SE Portland, creating a festive and inclusive atmosphere for this first-ever event rallying entrepreneurs of color from throughout the city.

The Market offered connections with and support for people of color along with live music, performances, gift ideas and food from some of Portland’s best restaurants.

Participating vendors—nearly half of whom came from Prosper Portland’s Inclusive Business Resource Network—reported more than $17,000 in sales. My People’s Market was developed in partnership between Prosper Portland, Travel Portland, and Partners in Diversity. Watch for more in 2018!
