About Us / James Beard Public Market History: The James Beard Public Market is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity with the mission to build a daily, year-round, indoor-outdoor marketplace celebrating the bounty of our region. Located in the heart of downtown Portland, the market will provide a central hub and market outlet for local ranchers, farmers, fishers, producers, brewers and more. Projected to open in 2018, James Beard Public Market aims to promote sustainable agricultural practices, encourage healthy eating habits, and provide entrepreneurial opportunities for our neighbors who produce and sell the food we eat.
James Beard Public Market will feature over 50 permanent vendors, 40 day tables, full-service restaurants, a teaching kitchen, and an event space. Upon opening in 2018, the market is expected to create approximately 250 jobs in the market itself and 100 jobs in local agriculture. James Beard Public Market is committed to creating a wholesome food system that is accessible and equitable to both vendors and shoppers from all walks of life.
