NAYA Spring Marketplace

Native American Youth and Family Center 5135 N.E. Columbia Blvd., Portland, OR 97218
Each year, NAYA’s gymnasium transforms into a bustling and festive marketplace – showcasing work from some of Portland’s finest Native American artists. In response to multiple requests from vendors at our Winter Marketplace, NAYA’s Community Development team decided to offer a Spring Marketplace to provide greater opportunities for Native business owners to meet new customers and get their goods to market.
Our Second Annual Spring Marketplace took place on May 12th 2018, showcasing 28 vendors offering everything from fine hand-crafted jewelry and prints of original Native artwork to clothing, tinctures, and essential oils. Our outreach efforts, in partnership with KBOO and the Northwest Area Foundation, proved successful, drawing about 600 people to the event, more than double the traffic of last year’s Spring Marketplace – a good sign for Native-owned businesses.
