Urban Air Market, a Market for Sustainable Design, Launches in Portland Early August
Urban Air Market, the largest outdoor sustainable shopping event, brings makers, music and art to Portland’s Zidell Yards on August 2nd and 3rd
Urban Air Market designers are selected based on their quality, originality, cleverness and method of sustainability in design. The event provides:
§ Consumers the ability to discover emerging designers, musicians, and artists
§ Artists and designers the ability to access new audiences for their work
§ Personal interaction between consumers and makers
§ An eco-conscious shopping experience
§ A platform for inspiration where designers can share ideas and collaborate
This two day pop-up event will be held at Zidell Yards, a former industrial shipyard located in the South Waterfront neighborhood set beside the Willamette River and Ross Island Bridge. Plans are underway to transform the 33-acre site into Portland's next great neighborhood, and a host to public parks, plazas, and river access. Urban Air Market is proud to be the first outdoor shopping event to activate the space.
The first 150 attendees to RSVP will receive a free canvas tote bag on arrival. To RSVP or to apply to be a featured Urban Air Market designer, please visit www.urbanairmarket.com.
