Welcome to the Portland Mercado, a grassroots community economic development project of Hacienda CDC. Along with community partners and an organized group of Latino entrepreneurs called the Asamblea, we are passionately working together to develop the first of its kind in Portland, a Latino-themed public market – El Mercado Latino de Portland – the Portland Mercado.
Our project aims to provide affordable retail space for small, diverse businesses to launch and grow and to provide a hub for Latino culture in Portland. The Portland Mercado is inspired by hardworking entrepreneurs, authentic hand-made food, social enterprise, vibrant cultures, and public markets throughout the world. Please continue exploring our site and stay in touch with developments by staying up to date with our news or by becoming involved.
Our Mission: The Portland Mercado is an economic development project based on Latino cultural heritage that brings together diverse cultures through entertainment, art, and food.
