Let’s make Friday a day to look forward to in The Dalles! Come down on your lunch hour, or meet friends visit the market and have a coffee date afterwards! Join us downtown and help make it the place to be on Fridays.

The Downtown Market will be starting June 1 every Friday until October 19. The Market opens at 9:30am and closes at 2:00pm. Vendors can start setting up at 8:00am and takedown is at 2pm to 3:30pm.

Where you ask?

The market will be located on Washington Street between 1st and 2nd streets. We will be using the back part of Washington Street to start hoping to expand as more vendors participate.

What can you sell???

Lots of stuff.

 Anything you make, grow, gather or bake.  Do you make cool jewelry or fun items from upcycled supplies? Farmers, food producers, bakers, clothing that you sew or even upcycle. Get creative. Do you have a home based business like Mary Kay or Lularoe? Antiques, wood crafts, gently used clothing, whatever you can think of. Are you an artist or take awesome photographs?

(Subject to Market Manager approval of course.)

 An added bonus is one of the largest river boats is docked on two markets every month and passengers have a bus stop right at the corner of Washington Street. Guess where they will go first?

Don’t forget non-profits! You are welcome too. Space for up to 5 nonprofit groups will be available at each market. So use us to get your message out! Or use it to make money selling something. 

We are passionate about local business and thrive when we are able to help entrepreneurs get started. Don’t let your doubts hold you back, we’re exactly the resource you’ve been looking for!
