Hello, Everyone! Our first-ever Portland Mini Market is taking place in just one week! Join us Saturday, August 9 – Sunday, August 10, 2014 outside Rejuvenation to shop handmade, plus workshops, music, and more! Our free mini market will take place outdoors on SE 6th St. (between SE Salmon and SE Taylor) surrounding Rejuvenation’s SE Grand store.
A condensed version of the bi-annual fairs, our mini market will be an exceptional one-off event offering up local goods and amazing festivities. The outdoor mini market will be open 12pm – 6pm each day and will feature a curated selection of today’s best and brightest independent Makers from the Pacific Northwest and beyond!
Spend your weekend with us shopping local and handmade! There will be a variety of outstanding handmade goods at the Fair – ranging from natural skincare, stationery, clothing and jewelry, to ceramics, housewares and much more. Browse this year’s line up of 60+ talented makers, artisan food vendors, and workshops here.
Expect a lively atmosphere at the fair, appropriate for all ages. The venue will be decorated with art installations by Renegade Craft. Shoppers will browse the finest independent makers such as, Combed Thunder, Cradle, and Herbivore Botanicals. Want something more interactive? Connect with the plant nerds and wildcrafters fromPortland Apothecary and make your own mini pinata with Red Circle Crafts.
In an effort to connect with and support small business growth, we’ve teamed up with The Business Outreach Program (BOP) at Portland State University. BOP helps local small businesses, including emerging, minority and women-owned businesses, achieve their potential while providing students with opportunities for community based learning. We are so thrilled to have BOP offering their expertise and services at our Mini Market!
Getting There: Visitors are encouraged to walk, bike, or take public transportation to the Fair. You can route directions to SE 6th Street (between SE Salmon and SE Taylor) here.
