PDX Pop-Up Shops

These unique, temporary pop-up shops in downtown Portland make holiday gifting easy.

BlackSheepMade-PdxPopUpShopsLocally made treasures (like these BlackSheepMade pins) were sold at PDX Pop Up Shops in 2018.

Here in Portland, we do things a little differently — and the same goes for holiday shopping. Leave the generic gifts in the online shopping carts. Instead, head to downtown Portland for presents your loved ones will adore.

For the last nine years, up-and-coming brands have posted up in empty storefronts with PDX Pop-Up Shops. The initiative has provided a launchpad for new companies and the pop-ups are a unique opportunity to shop local brands. What’s more, by spending your dollars at local brands, you’re supporting Portland’s entrepreneurs and creatives.

The PDX Pop-Up Shops program has served as a launch pad for permanent shops, such as Crafty Wonderland, Boys Fort, and Bridge & Burn. Program partners include the Portland Business Alliance, Clean & Safe District, Prosper Portland, Travel Portland, Innovative Housing Inc. and Pioneer Place.
