Celebrate Independents Week!

Join Portland Buy Local this summer as we celebrate Independents Week, July 1-7. Independents week is a national campaign to engage local independent businesses and citizens in celebrating entrepreneurial spirit and the freedom our local businesses embody.

We hope you’ll come to the first ever Portland Buy Local CASH MOB at the Portland Farmers Market to celebrate Independents Week. Cash mobs are community events where participants meet at a specific place and time and agree to spend money at a local business while having fun and getting to know other PBL members at the same time. For the first cash mob, we will be shopping at the Portland Farmers’ Market – Join us Tuesday, July 3rd at noon to enjoy a piece of Buy Local birthday cake, grab the new 2018/19 directory, and hear instructions for the cash mob.
