The Portland Mercado

The Portland Mercado, the city’s first and only Latino public market, opened in April 2015.

Five years in the making, the Portland Mercado, developed by Hacienda CDC on Prosper Portland-owned property at SE Foster Rd. and 72nd Avenue, hosts nearly 20 Latino-owned businesses and food trucks offering everything from fresh produce to flowers and Cuban-Argentine fusion food. Prosper Portland helped throughout the planning process with grant funding, concept development and the business plan, making a total investment of more than $1 million along with extending a long-term lease of the property to Hacienda for $1 per year.
