The establshment of Monument(al) Market in the Square starting on Thursday, May 19th this spring and  running through the summer was announced this morning in a press release issued by Portland Downtown.

It’s an effort to program Monument Square and return vibrancy to one of our city’s most compelling plazas.  Portland Downtown is teaming up with Monument Square businesses and property owners to recruit makers, artists and other vendors to offer their wares Thursdays throughout the spring and summer.

“This Monument(al) Market in the Square brings vibrancy to one of our premier locations in the city.  It wil help local entrepreneurs while at the same time being an active space that will entice tourists and others.  We hope folks will also buy lunch or snack at nearby restaurants and eat outside.  We’re excited to continue to bring activity to our downtown,” said Cary Tyson, Executive Director of Portland Downtown.

Interested vendors can complete an application available at or contact Cary Tyson @  Please contact Portland Downtown directly as this blogger has nothing at all to do with the application process.
