3rd Year Anniversary Vendor Application
Join us for our 3rd Year Anniversary Party, Saturday April 7th from 12 -8pm a food and cultural festival in the heart of Southeast Portland!
Last year we welcomed many vendors and sponsors, raised money for ACLU and Hacienda CDC and contributed to an estimated economic impact of over $35,000.
To compliment the diversity of foods and beverages, there will be a wide variety of high quality Latin American entertainment including live music, dancing, kid friendly activities and art.
Spaces are limited. Please submit your application as a food or service/retail. Applications will be reviewed on a first come first served basis and preference will be given to businesses that represent the diversity of Latin American cuisine and culture, or who have been in the Incubator Services of Portland Mercado (ex: advising or kitchen rental), or prior vendors at our events.
Completed online applications, along with payment will be reviewed in a timely manner and applicants will be notified and contacted with approval within 2 weeks. The Portland Mercado will refund 100% of vendor fees if your application is not approved. Cancellations made a week ahead of the event will be fully refunded. Cancellations made less than a week before the event will not receive a refund.
