Adelante Planning is helping the Latino Community in Portland plan and create a Mercado Latino which would provide new business opportunities and trusted products and services to Latinos and others in the Portland, OR region. We are currently speaking with local market-goers and vendors at established Latino markets in Gresham and Hillsboro, OR as well as those enrolled in entrepreneurial classes at Hacienda CDC. Adelante Planning is also seeking assistance and input from market and community development leaders in Portland and around the nation to help create siting, programming and financial structuring recommendations for a new market.

    Very interesting project! Another market you may want to look into is M&S Sales in Salem, Oregon. Many of the booths are operated by small Latino businesses.
